Vinita was sure of the answer but told Big B that the biggest culprit is the amount, as it is so big that she is scared to take the risk. She was 90 percent sure of the answer and ultimately decided to go for it and won Rs 1 crore. The correct answer is the Kesavananda Bharati case.

Though she quit, when asked to take a guess, she chose option A: Edward Calahan, which was, in fact, the right answer, leaving host Amitabh Bachchan stumped
Vinita said, “I had been trying since the first season. I have always been into quizzes and general knowledge shows. And fortunately, I got lucky this time. Though I never expected I would win a crore. I thought that I would only go till Rs 12.5 lakh.”
About her experience of being on the iconic show, she said, “Initially I was very nervous. I took so much time in answering the first two questions. But soon I tried to calm and compose myself because I knew I wouldn’t be able to play long under pressure. And then I totally forgot that I was in front of the camera and so many people were watching me.”
Last year, Jamshedpur’s Anamika Majumdar won Rs 1 crore and quit the show when she couldn’t answer the jackpot question. It will be interesting to see if Vinita wins the coveted prize money of Rs 7 crore.
