Lucknow. The 11th Chapter of the India's most loved quiz show - Kaun Banega Crorepati has kept the audience hooked since its launch. The Amitabh Bachchan-hosted show finds the actor sitting on the hot seat and tossing a series of tough questions to his contestants. One among the many fans of this show is Bollywood filmmaker Karan Johar. 

Karan was watching the Tuesday episode, wherein Himanshu, a 19-year-old commercial pilot from UP, was on the hot seat. He had won Rs.50 lakh and was asked the Rs.1 crore question, which had a direct link with KJo's upcoming mega directorial, Takht. 

The question was "Whose Persian translation of several Upanishads is known as the ‘Sirr-e-Akbar’?" The options given were a) Abul Fazal b) Shah Waliullah Dehlvi c) Dara Shikoh and d) Ahmad al-Sirhindi. The director-producer took to his Twitter handle to share the question, revealing about knowing the answer to it. He tagged Ranveer Singh, the lead star of Takht, and wrote that he, too, would have known the answer. His post read, “I knew the 1 crore answer!!!!!! #DARASHIKOH and so would you have @RanveerOfficial #TAKHT” 
While Himanshu could not answer and quit the game with Rs 50 lakh as prize money. But, his guess turned out be right when he was asked to choose one of the options. For the uninitiated, Takht is set in the Mughal era and will see Ranveer playing Dara Shikoh, the eldest son and heir-apparent of the Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan. Vicky Kaushal will be essaying the role of his younger brother, Aurangzeb. Kareena Kapoor Khan, Alia Bhatt, Janhvi Kapoor, Bhumi Pednekar and Anil Kapoor will also be playing pivotal roles.
