KBC is not giving amounts For Winners
Sushil Kumar, who is the first contestant to win Rs 5 crore on ‘Kaun Banega Crorepati 5′, still didn’t receive the pay cheque. The 27-year-old expressed his inability to help the people who were approaching him for financial help.
“I haven’t received a single paisa yet. Nor have I got any intimation or call from the channel as to when the money will reach me. I don’t even know how much I’ll get after tax deduction, etc. Basically, I am being flooded with requests to share the fund that I don’t even have,” Sushil Kumar said to a tabloid.
However, Amitabh Bachchan who is the host of the show clarified that Sushil Kumar will be given the cheque on December 16th.
“People asking why Sushil Kumar not paid his KBC win. Cheque ready, but he wants it at CNN-IBN Award ceremony in Delhi on 16th. Also as per terms and conditions of Sony, they have to pay within 60 days of on air broadcast. So still time for expiry!,” tweeted Amitabh.
Sushil Kumar who lives in Bihar, worked as a computer operator and tutor earning an income of Rs 6,000 per month, before winning the KBC 5 full prize money. He is a married man and live in a big joint family with 5 brothers.
