The contestant, named Jai Kurukshetra, told Amitabh that during his childhood, he had wanted to buy himself a snack for Rs 7, but his mother could only afford to give Jay Rs 5. Amitabh then shared a personal anecdote with Jai and the audience. He recalled that when he was a child, he’d wanted to join the school cricket team, but needed Rs 2 to do so. His mother, Teji Bachchan, told him that they did not have the money.
Amitabh said that the incident taught him an important lesson. “Rs 2 ka mulya kya hai woh aaj hume yaad ata hai (I still remember the importance of Rs 2),” he said.Hindustan Times
