Hyderabad: The Popular Indian television game show ‘Kaun Banega Crorepati’ is in its 11th season. Contestants from across India get a chance to win up to Rs 7 crore based on their knowledge.

In Friday’s episode of the show, a rollover contestant, Narendra Kumar from Mathura failed to answer a question of Rs 6,40,000 related to former Congress president Rahul Gandhi.

Narendra Kumar played well until the 10th question for Rs 3,20,000. But failed to answer the 11th question of Rs 6,40,000 which was, “Which of the following members of the 17th Lok Sabha is a black belt in Aikido, a Japanese Martial art?”

 The four options given were – A: Gautam Gambhir B: Rahul Gandhi C: Anurag Thakur D: Tejasvi Surya.
Narendra was unsure of the answer as he was at the no-risk stage wherein even a wrong answer would have won him 3.20 lakh without any loss.
He further took a risk and chose Option D: Tejasvi Surya, but to his disappointment, he was wrong as the correct answer was Rahul Gandhi. It came as a surprise to everyone as people are unaware that Rahul Gandhi holds a Black belt in the Japanese martial art form, Aikido.
Once a contestant answers the 10th question round of Rs 3.20 lakh, get Rs 3.20 lakh even if they give a wrong answer in the further stages of the game.
 He had to bow out of the show taking Rs 3,20,000/. Meanwhile, special guests Hima Das, Dutee Chand and Virender Sehwag participated in the show to play the special ‘Karmveer’ episode.
 Following this segment, member of Parliament for Bengaluru South, Tejasvi Surya took to Twitter to share the same question involving his name as one of the options.
 He Tweeted – “Bro. I feel so bad for you. I wish I were indeed a black belt in Aikido. You would have been a richer man today. :)”
