The ninth season of the reality quiz show Kaun Banega Crorepati concluded with its Grand Finale airing on Tuesday and Wednesday.
But the curtains were drawn indeed with a blockbuster grand finale of Amitabh Bachchan’s show with cricketer Yuvraj Singh and actress Vidya Balan on the Hot Seats.
During the Grand Finale, a heavy moment comes where Yuvraj Singh breaks down while describing his battle with cancer.
About having diagnosed with cancer he said: “Being an athlete it was very difficult for me to accept. When you’re playing for 6-8 hours every day, you simply can’t believe you’ve cancer.”
“I too was escaping from the same and I continued to play. Then the doctors told me if I continue to ignore my health then it’ll be difficult for you to survive. I thought the doctors are probably lying because I wanted to play and continued to neglect my health and then my condition deteriorated and so did my performance in the sport. With no alternative, I had to go for treatment,” Yuvraj Singh broke down while recounting his experience.
Singh underwent treatment in the United States and emerged victorious against cancer.
Yuvraj and Vidya were playing to help out with the fund of the cricketer’s NGO about cancer awareness – You We Can. They won 25 lakhs on the show.
