The report was that Sushil Kumar, winner of Kaun Banega Crorepati 5 (KBC 5) has not received his 5 crore money prize yet. But now, KBC host Amitabh Bachchan tweeted that the cheque is ready but he wants it at CNN-IBN Award ceremony in Delhi.
Amitabh Bachchan further added that according to terms and conditions of Sony Channel, they have to pay within 60 days of on air broadcast. So still there is time for handing over the cheque. In an interview, Sushil Kumar had said that he has not received the money yet and has not got any call from the Channel. He does not know how much he will get after tax deductions. But, the requests are pouring in from various persons needing help and wanting donations. They are making a bee-line before him for help. When KBC has not paid so far, how can he share it, added Sushil Kumar.
