The winner of Amitabh Bachchan’s “Kaun Banega Crorepati Season 5”, Sushil Kumar, who won Rs 5 crore, penned an emotional note about facing difficulties in life after winning the show. He revealed that it was the worst time of his life.
Winner of the mega-star Amitabh Bachchan-hosted hit quiz show “Kaun Banega Crorepati Season 5”, Sushil Kumar who bagged Rs 5 crore, recently shared an emotional note about facing difficulties in life after winning the show.
In a note on his Facebook page, Sushil Kumar titled, “The worst phase of my life after winning Kaun Banega Crorepati”. Sushil has written all about the trials and tribulations he had to face after winning the jackpot. From getting addicted to booze and cigarette, getting duped by cheats, making some bad decisions to even ruining his relationship with his wife, Sushil talked about all that went wrong.
Sushil Kumar started the note by writing, “2015-2016 was the most challenging time of my life. I didn’t know what to do. I was a local celebrity and would attend programs for 10 or sometimes even 15 days a month somewhere or the other in Bihar. I was drifting away from my studies.
And because I was a local celebrity, I took the media very seriously in those days. Sometimes journalists would interview and write about me. Without any experience of how I should speak with them, I would tell them about the business I was involved in so that I don’t come across as jobless. However, those businesses would collapse after a few days.”
Sushil Kumar also wrote that “After KBC, I had sort of becoming a philanthropist who was addicted to ‘secret donations’ and therefore, I would attend some about 50 thousand events in a month. Due to this, a lot of times, people cheated on me, which I got to know only after the donations were made.
Because of all this, my relationship with my wife was slowly deteriorating. She would often say that I didn’t know how to differentiate between the right and wrong people and that I wasn’t concerned about the future. On this, we would often fight.”
He mentioned meeting good people in Delhi, such as students of JNU, IIMC, and other scholars, and realized he still had little knowledge about the world. He was exposed to new ideas and simultaneously got attached to bad habits. “But all this was followed by addiction, of cigarettes and alcohol. Whenever we would meet, it would be over booze and cigarettes,” he said.
