Another epic episode of KBC 11, the ‘Karamveer Episode’ streamed yesterday. The fifth episode of the quiz show witnessed two guests playing with show's host Amitabh Bachchan.
The first one was the roll-over contestant Noopur Chauhan, who managed to garner a whopping sum of Rs. 12,50,000 and the other one was the first 'KBC Karamveer' contestant, social activist Sindhutai Sapakal, who was accompanied by her daughter Mamata Sapakal.
Big B touched feet of Sindhutai Sapakal in reverence after introducing her to the audience.
Meanwhile, in the game, Sindhutai tells Big B how she learned to share when she felt hungry. Further, she told that she is a mother to all the orphans whom she has come across. And therefore, she is widely addressed as the 'Mother of Orphans.’
Sindhutai Sapakal, who took helpless children who had no one else in the world to gave them a nurturing home and support, is a mother to over 1200 orphans now.
She also told Big B,
“Jiska koi nahi uski main hu.”
In the further conversation between Sindhutai and Big B, many interesting revelations about her life occurred. For example, Big B asked about her fascination with pink saris.
Sindhutai, the much-feted social activist, replies,
"I have seen so much of blackness, let there be a bit of pink in my life now."
The entire set reacted with thunderous applause.
