The show hosted by Amitabh Bachchan, Kaun Banega Crorepati 13, has been a fan favorite for years and every time the show returns, it draws audiences from home, either on the SonyLIV app or just screaming responses on-screen. On Thursday's episode, IAS aspiring Dr. Monica Gorobanchian managed to answer the questions until she earned Rs 6.40,000, but asking for Rs 12,50,000 left her confused and left the show.
Monica used all her lifelines, so she had the choice of risking her profit and going down to Rs 3.20,000 or walking away with Rs 6.40,000 and opting for the latter. The question that made Monica leave the show was: Which of these planets are often called "Ice Giant"? The options were: Uranus, Saturn, Jupiter, Mars.
Monica was confused between Uranus and Saturn. After leaving the show, Amitabh Bachchan asked her to guess the correct answer and she chose Saturn, which was actually the wrong answer.
The correct answer was Uranus.

After Monica's resignation, the trumpet blew. The remaining three contestants will not be able to participate in Friday's match.
At the start of the game, ex-diplomat Manju Seth returns home with Rs 40,000 after using all his lifelines and is surprised by the Rs 80,000 issue. He was supposed to name the author of the autobiography of the unknown Indian. The choices were Khushwant Singh, Raja Rao, Nirad C Choudhary, and RK Narayan. The correct answer was Nirad C Chaudhuri.
The Shaandaar Shukravaar episode will feature Olympic gold medalist Neeraj Chopra and hockey player PR Srejesh.
