Amitabh Bachchan’s Kaun Banega Crorepati hosted its second episode on Friday, KBC Karamveer. In the special episode, the show hosted Neel Ghose from the organisation Robin Hood Army along with Bollywood actress Kajol. Robin Hood Army is an organisation that collects excess food from the restaurants and gives it to the less fortunate citizens. Neel Ghose along with Kajol won Rs 6,40,000.
Neel Ghose even said at the beginning of the episode that whatever amount he would be winning, he will donate it to India’s largest NGO, Akshaya Patra Foundation. The organisation aims to eliminate classroom hunger by implementing the Mid-Day Meal Scheme in the government and government-aided schools across the country. It also focuses on countering malnutrition and supporting the right to education of socio-economically disadvantaged children.
