Kaun Banega Crorepati is one television show that has been mesmerising the audience ever since it started back in 2000. With Amitabh Bachchan as the host, the knowledge-based reality show makes fans answer some tough GK questions while giving a general dose of entertainment simultaneously. 

Besides this, whenever someone reaches the Rs 1 crore mark, it immediately makes headlines. In the current season, two contestants have already won Rs 1 crore and now Gautam Kumar Jha, who was seen in the latest episode, has become a crorepati. However, Gaumtan couldn't answer the Rs 7 crore and quit the show with Rs 1 crore. Amitabh Bachchan lauded his performance. 

Gautam Kumar Jha hails from Madhubani district of Gangdwar, Bihar and is a senior section engineer. In yesterday's episode Gautam, who won the fastest finger's first after Akhilesh Kumar's Rs 3,20,000 win, had gone up to Rs 40,000 and was today's roll-over contestant. Besides his impressive knowledge about current affairs, it was his adorable relationship with his wife that Big B noticed. 

Here's the question that got Gautam Kumar to win Rs 1 crore: 

Aboard which made-in-India ship did Francis Scott Key write the poem "Defence of Fort M'Henry" that became the US national anthem?

A. HMS Cornwallis

B. HMS Lindsey

C. HMS Clive

Gautam chose the correct answer which is 'D. HMS Minden'.
