Kaun Banega Crorepati is a popular question and answer game hosted by Bollywood actor Amitabh Bachchan. As per the format of the game, several people come on the show and play the quiz to take back home the winning amount. Recently, a viewer claimed that one of the questions asked during the show was incorrect. A viewer also claimed that the wrong answer to one of the questions asked on Monday’s episode of KBC 13 was shown as correct.

A viewer tweeted about a question asked on the show, which he claimed was wrong. It all happened when Amitabh Bachchan welcomed the contestant named Deepti Tope on the hot seat last night. She has been working in the tourism sector for the last 15 years. As she reached the second level, the host of the show Amitabh Bachchan asked her, “Normally, with which of these does every sitting of the Indian Parliament start?” Till then she had already used all her lifelines and wasn’t sure of the answer, Deepti decided to quit the game and took home the whole Rs 1.6 lakh. Later the correct answer was shown to be ‘Question Hour’.

Once the episode got finished, a viewer noted that the answer was incorrect. The Twitter user named Ashish Chaturvedi took a screenshot and tweeted, “Wrong question and answer in today’s episode of @KBCsony. Have followed several sessions on TV. Normally sitting in #LokSabha begins with Zero hour and sitting in #RajyaSabha begins with Question hour. Please get it checked. @SrBachchan @LokSabhaSectt @babubasu.”

The producer of the show Kaun Banega Crorepati Siddhartha Basu reacted to the viewers’ tweet. While defending his team Basu gave a clarification and mentioned how the question aired was correct. Siddhartha Basu’s tweet reads as, “No error whatsoever. Kindly check the handbooks for members of the Lok Sabha & Rajya Sabha for yourself. In both houses, unless otherwise directed by the speaker/chairperson, sittings conventionally begin with Question Hour, followed by Zero Hour.”

The Twitter user in a follow-up tweet along with the screenshots wrote, “Mr. Basu, thank you for your response. I cross checked the information on Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha websites. The two screenshots testify that both the question, as well as the answer were wrong. Must mention that sitting in Rajya Sabha begins at 11.00 am.”

To this Siddhartha Basu again tweeted and wrote, “These spell out in black & white exactly what the question & answer assert. Please read them or any other authoritative source again. There is no room for misinterpretation. It’s odd that you should persist with seeing an error where there is none.”
