Ashish Suvarna’s motivating story is something we all should know. At a young age, when kids play and hang out with friends, Ashish Suvarna was well matured as he wanted to support his family.

He did early this year. The KBC 13 contestant bought 1 BHK house in Mumbai for his parents. “I saved money and slowly when a large chunk was saved, I bought 1BHK.

Ashish Suvarna shared his experience meeting Amitabh Bachchan
Ashish was short of words while speaking to us as he still cannot believe he just met Amitabh Bachchan. He said, “Watching Amitabh Bachchan in real life has always been a dream. 2020 mein bhi nahi socha tha kabhi Amitabh Bachchan se agle saal milunga (Never thought of meeting the legendary actor ever in my life, not even last year). Unke saamne beithna (sitting in front of him) is a really big achievement. Watching him opposite and playing the show is a different feeling. He is a great person and made me feel calm, comfortable.” Also Read - KBC 13: Neeraj Chopra Leaves Amitabh Bachchan In Splits With Haryanvi Spin To Iconic Dialogue 'Main Aur Meri Tanhai'
