Who is Mayank?
Impressing Amitabh Bachchan with his knowledge on the KBC 15 hot seat, Mayank’s strategic approach to each question garnered praise from the veteran actor. During the interaction, Senior Bachchan humorously inquired about the source of Mayank’s extensive knowledge, to which Mayank’s father remarked that even the teachers are amazed as Mayank anticipates what they will teach two days in advance.
When asked about his future aspirations, Mayank expressed a desire for a transparent life without secrets and revealed an unlimited approach to his goals, emphasizing that the sky is the limit. In a promo released by Sony Entertainment Television, Mayank highlighted the significance of knowledge as the paramount factor in his journey.
Throughout the show, Amitabh Bachchan continually praised Mayank’s generation. The veteran actor also peppered the game with anecdotes from his own experiences when he was twelve years old. During the episode, Amitabh Bachchan disclosed that he still experiences confusion distinguishing between push and pull. He contrasted his situation with the current generation of kids who exhibit proficiency in discussing topics such as Artificial Intelligence and coding.
Which question did Mayank answer to become a crorepati?
Mayank skillfully tackled all the questions until he reached the pivotal ₹1 crore question, which asked, “Which European cartographer is credited with creating the map that gave the name ‘America’ to the newly discovered continent?”
To address this, Mayank opted to use the ‘Ask the Expert’ lifeline and chose Martin Waldseemuller. His answer proved accurate, and as a result, Amitabh Bachchan declared Mayank as the first junior crorepati of Season 15.
Advancing to the ₹7 crore question, it sought information about the city to which Subedar NR Nikkam and Havildar Gajendra transported supplies during World War II, earning them the order of the Red Star from Russia. After thoughtful consideration, Mayank chose to exit the show, having exhausted all of his lifelines.
