Question about Anwar on India’s Who Wants to Be a Millionaire goes viral

Contestant correctly picks country which elected Pakatan Harapan chairman as its PM in 2022

KUALA LUMPUR – Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim’s international popularity has helped an Indian national win 640,000 rupees (RM34,204.42) after a question about the prime minister made it into India’s Who Wants to Be a Millionaire (Kaun Banega Crorepati) game show.

A snippet of the game show, which aired on December 23, showed senior project manager Nipun Rajan from Delhi correctly answering a question by host Amitabh Bachchan on Anwar’s premiership.

The clip has also gone viral in the past few days.

Amitabh: In which country, in 2022, was Anwar Ibrahim elected its prime minister? Option A: Iraq; B: Malaysia; C: Bahrain; D: Indonesia.

Nipun: Iraq, Malaysia, Bahrain, Indonesia. From the names of the countries, he could be from any of them.

But I may have read this somewhere recently. So, I would like to go with option B, Malaysia.

Amitabh: B, Malaysia. Let’s lock it. Sir, you said of all the names (of the countries), he could belong to any one of them.

Nipun: Yes.

Amitabh: And you said that you would like to go for this. You have read about this?

Nipun: Yes, I read it somewhere.

Amitabh: Where did you read about it?

Nipun: On the internet.

Amitabh: Which internet? (said in jest, drawing laughter from the crowd). What you read is absolutely the correct answer, which you gave. Well played.

The question on Anwar is the 11th question posed to Nipun.

However, Nipun withdrew from the game show after question number 12 was posed to him as he was unable to answer it.

Despite that, he took home a cash prize of 640,000 rupees.

Who Wants to Be a Millionaire has many variants across the globe but originated from the UK.

In India’s version, the number of questions goes up to 17 with the prize totalling 7.5 crore (RM4,008,144.92).
