From rags to riches to rags again! KBC 5 winner selling cow milk to make a living.
Life has totally turned upside down for Sushil Kumar, the winner of Sony TV’s popular game show, Kaun Banega Crorepati 5.
Once a small time computer operator in Bihar with MGNREGA who earned Rs. 6000, Sushil had won a hefty sum of 5 crores as a prize money on the show. However, right now Sushil is both broke and out of job.
Sushil told HT that after paying all the taxes, he was left with Rs 3.6 crore. Out of which, most of it was spent on setting up business for his brothers. He told-
“Much of the money was spent in building a house which I share with my parents and four brothers. I have also purchased a plot of land in Motihari in the name of my mother and some agricultural land”
When nothing worked out for him, Sushil tried his hands at politics but, only to fail.
Now living off the interest income which comes from his fixed deposits and making ends meet by selling milk from the four cows he has purchased, Sushil says he is looking at becoming a school teacher.
We can only hope for the times to change for Sushil again.
