Kaun Banega Crorepati 11 on Tuesday, will be a nail-biting and exciting episode as 19-year-old trainee pilot Himanshu Dhuria, from Raebareli, Uttar Pradesh will be sitting on the hot seat opposite host Amitabh Bachchan and play for Rs 1 crore. Himanshu becomes the second contestant in this season of KBC to attempt Rs 1 crore question. Excitement is high as viewers will get to know if Himashu will take home Rs 7 crore or will quit with Rs 50 lakh in his account.

The Monday's (September 9) episode began with Amitabh Bachchan introducing the 10 contestants competing for the Fastest Finger First round. The 10 contestants were asked to arrange the order of the planets in the solar system. Dhuria answered the question correctly in mere 2.42 seconds. He created a history by being the fastest one to answer a question on the show this season.

Soon after, Himanshu joined Amitabh Bachchan on the hot seat, the journey of the trainee pilot was shared through a video. Big B was amazed by the achievements of Dhuria and enquires more about his profession, having a similar fondness for aircraft in his childhood.

Dhuria's maternal grandmother and his best friend have accompanied him to the KBC 11 game show.

The game started after the customary explaining of the rule and introducing the expert of the episode Meenakshi Kandwal.

Dhuria opted for a lifeline on the very first question but continued to play on with a sense of ease through the episode. Towards the end of the episode, he had almost all his lifelines exhausted but he correctly answered the Rs 50 lakh question, prompting loud applause from the audience and Big B's signature reaction: "Well played!"

Here are the questions Dhuria was asked by Amitabh Bachchan on KBC 11 during Monday's episode:

Unsure of the answer, Dhuria chose his second lifeline - 50-50.

Ans. A) Guru Gobind Singh

9. “Six Machine: I don’t like cricket, I love" is the autobiography of which cricketer known for his explosive batting?

Dhuria again opts for a lifeline - flip the question. But before the change in question, he chooses to answer C) Yuvraj Singh which turns out to be wrong. The correct answer is Chris Gayle.

The question changed to - Which river runs westward during the major part of their course within India?

Ans. B) Brahmaputra

As Amitabh Bachchan was about to proceed to the 15th question for Rs 1 crore, the buzzer announcing the end of the episode rang. Dhuria will continue playing in Tuesday’s episode.

During the Monday's episode Amitabh Bachchan was surprised to learn that despite being a trainee pilot, Dhuria is afraid of heights. Suggesting that he should warn his passengers on flight, Big B added: "Landing ke samaye toh aapko neeche dekhna hai. Runway pe utarna hai, khet me nahin. (While landing you have to look down. You have to land the flight on runway and not on fields.)"
