On the sets of Kaun Banega Crorepati season 12, contestant Jay Kulshehtha managed to bag Rs 12,50,000. Kulsheshtha, who was from Mumbai, got stuck on the question which was asked for Rs 25 lakh. He was left with lifelines but he did not use it because he was not sure if the lifeline could help him out. The question which was asked for Rs 25 lakh by host Amitabh Bachchan was-
Question: “According to the Treaty of Sugauli, which river marked a natural boundary between India and Nepal?”
The correct answer to this question is option (A) Kaali which Kaali was unable to get right. However, after quitting the question, show-host Amitabh Bachchan asked him to guess any of the options and Jay guessed it right. But, according to the rules he had no option to come back on the hot seat and he lost a check of Rs 25 Lakh.
Talking about the details of the answer to this question, the Treaty of Sugali was signed in December 1815 to establish the border with Nepal. It was later dismissed after the Anglo-Nepalese War of 1814-16.
