The contestant Deepti Tupe was asked by KBC 13 host Amitabh Bachchan, “Normally, with which of these does every sitting of the Indian Parliament start?” And the correct answer was shown to be ‘Question Hour’.

The wrong question and answer in the last episode of @KBCsony followed several sessions on Television. Normally sitting in #LokSabha begins with Zero hours and sitting in #RajyaSabha begins with Question hour. Please get it checked @LokSabhaSectt @SrBachchan@babubasu .

Siddhartha replied, “No error whatsoever. Kindly check the handbooks for members of the Lok Sabha & Rajya Sabha for yourself. In both houses, unless otherwise directed by the speaker/chairperson, sittings conventionally begin with Question Hour, followed by Zero Hour.”

The viewer wrote in a follow-up tweet, “Mr. Basu, thank you for your response. I cross-checked the information on Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha websites. The two screenshots testify that both the question, as well as the answer were wrong. Must mention that sitting in Rajya Sabha begins at 11.00 am.” He even attached screenshots along with his post.

Kaun Banega Crorepati first premiered in 2000 and celebrated 21 years this year. Contestants answer a series of increasingly difficult questions to win prize money of Rs. 7 crores.

Earlier this year, in an interview, Siddhartha conveyed that criticism directed towards KBC for ‘selling sob stories’ and said that some of the emotions were 'engineered’ for the sake of ratings.

“KBC has never been just another quiz show. The human story has always mattered, and that’s what created the sensation of the first season in India, based on which Vikas wrote his book Q&A. It’s never been only sob stories though on KBC. If people get emotional, that’s not engineered. That’s natural on a life-changing show before a massive audience and a larger-than-life host,” he had said, adding that KBC ‘touches live with the heart as well as the mind’.
