Kaun Banega Crorepati is one of the most popular reality game show in all of India, which is why it has now got its localised versions in multiple different languages, including Kaun Banega Crorepati Tamil. The Tamil version of the popular game show, titled Kodeeswari, is hosted by the veteran Tamil actor Radikaa Sarathkumar. The show recently featured a 31-year-old contestant named Kousalya Kharthika, who is differentially abled and suffers from speech and hearing impediment. Interestingly, Kousalya also happens to be the first-ever contestant on Kodeeswari to win the ₹1 crore cash prize.
