MUMBAI—The hot seat of Sony Entertainment Television’s reality game show “Kaun Banega Crorepati 9” saw Rajudas Rathod win Rs. 2,500,000 (25 lakh). Rathod, who is from Beed in Maharashtra, revealed that he is a diehard fan of Sachin Tendulkar.

He said, “I have broken 4 to 5 TV remotes because once my daughter starts watching cartoons, it’s a task getting it back to watch cricket. I refuse to miss any chance of seeing Sachin on screen. I used to sit in front of the television an hour before a match starts and before praying for my family, I pray for Sachin. Sachin is the reason I exist, and I have found my happiness because of him. If I ever get a chance to meet him, I won’t know what to say! I will touch his feet first.”

Tendulkar took to Twitter and promised to meet him soon and not make him break remotes. So now, Rathod will find his feet – Tendulkar’s, we mean!
