Amitabh Bachchan’s Kaun Banega Crorepati, the country’s most popular game show, is coming back with its 10th season on Monday. The host will bring back a tonne of money, some interesting contestants and a whole lot of difficult questions back on our television screens.

As the show added another season to its long list, we look back at all the times contestants won big or lost even bigger on Kaun Banega Crorepati. It is a well known fact that as a contestant answers more and more questions correctly and collects more cheques signed by Amitabh, the questions also get more difficult. While the initial few questions ask you to guess a song’s words or complete an old idiom, the later few ask you about the most peculiar things most of us have no clue about.

A few bright minds are able to answer them correctly while some overconfident ones take the leap and end up losing a big amount. We bring you the question that made Harshvadhan Navathe a crorepati, the question that was posed to the first man to win Rs 5 crore, Sushil Kumar, and the question asked of the first and only winners of Rs 7 crore, brothers Achin and Sarthak Narula. Can you answer any of these correctly?
