Graphic Designer Sandip Vrujlal Savaliya, who recently won Rs 25 lakhs on the popular game show Kaun Banega Crorepati, says he feels like a celeb after sharing screen space with Amitabh Bachchan.
He adds, “It’s amazing. I hail from a small place in Gujarat wherein people are not well educated. I too had to struggle a lot to reach this stage. I am the only one from the village, who has cleared school and then Diploma. Since, I did not have money for my diploma course, the entire village and teachers collected money so that I could pursue what I wanted and today I am a graphic designer. After being part of the show and sharing screen space with Amitabh Bachchan sir, I feel like a celebrity. The villagers treat me like a celeb now.”
Talking about his experience playing KBC, he says, “When I entered the set, it was an amazing feeling. I sat for the fastest finger first round and was very nervous. Many things run in your mind while you wait for the question. Also you have to be as quick as possible as the competition is really strong. I was fortunate enough to get selected. It’s a priceless experience.”
So how was the feeling on meeting legendary actor Amitabh Bachchan, he shares, “He is a very polite and humble person. He treats us as his guests, who have come over to his place. I felt amazing after meeting him. He is a grounded human being.”
On an end note, he shares on what he plans to do with the winning amount. “I would spend 20% of the price money for the kids’ education who cannot afford it. And with the rest of the amount, I want to buy a house for my family then I plan to expand my business.”
Way to go Sandip!
