Karan Johar knew KBC's Rs 1 crore question

Filmmaker Karan Johar knew the answer to the Rs 1 crore question asked on the Tuesday episode of the reality-based quiz show "Kaun Banega Crorepati" hosted by megastar Amitabh Bachchan.

A 19-year-old contestant named Himanshu Dhuria lost the chance to take home Rs 1 crore from the show. The question asked was about the Sirr-e-Akbar -- Whose Persian translation of several Upanishads is known as the 'Sirr-e-Akbar'?

The options provided were Abul Fazal, Shah Wallulah Dehlvi, Dara Shikoh and Ahmad al-Sirhindi.

Karan tweeted on Tuesday night that he knew the Rs 1 crore answer. "I knew the 1 crore answer! 'Dara Shikoh and so would you have Ranveer. Takht," he wrote.

Sirr-e-Akbar is a compilation of fifty Upanishads translated into Persian by Dara Shikoh. Dara Shikoh was the eldest son of the Mughal emperor Shah Jahan and the brother of Aurangzeb -- and also the protagonist of KJo's next directorial Takht.

Ranveer Singh will play the role of Dara Shikoh in the movie.

Takth also stars Vicky Kaushal, Kareena Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, Bhumi Pednekar, Anil Kapoor and Janhvi Kapoor.
