Everyone out there dreams of winning ‘Kaun Banega Crorepati’. After all, winning such a huge amount can change one’s life overnight. However, Sushil Kumar, the winner of ‘Kaun Banega Crorepati’ season 5 recently shared how things turned to be worst after we won the whopping sum of Rs. 5 crores on the show.

Hailing from Bihar’s Champaran, Sushil wanted to become an IAS officer. However, things didn’t turn out the way he wanted them after his big win on KBC. Failing to use the prize money wisely, Kumar is struggling in his life. And he recently shared in a lengthy post in Hindi on Facebook. He shared the post alongside the caption-“The worst time of my life was after I won KBC’.”

From alcohol addiction to almost divorcing his wife, there were still worst things that Sushil went through. “I became a local celebrity and was invited for multiple events across Bihar for 10-15 days every month. Because of the same, my education took a back seat. Also, I used to take the media very seriously back then. And to avoid being taken as jobless whenever they called me, I started investing in various businesses.”

Unfortunately, most of these businesses in which he invested failed to generate any profit for him and he lost a lot of money. Sushil also said that he used to donate around Rs, 50,000 every month after winning KBC. However many duped him and misused his philanthropy. His relationship with his wife also took a hit and they almost got divorced.

Later he rented out a few cars in Delhi and there he met a few student groups.”During this time, I met a few students’ groups and got exposed to new ideas and beliefs. I would feel like a frog in the well, as I did not have knowledge of a lot of things.” And his frequent meeting with these groups led to his addiction to smoke and alcohol. “But all this was followed by addiction, of cigarettes and alcohol. Whenever we would meet, it would be over booze and cigarettes,” he added.

He then developed a keen interest in filmmaking and used to spend all his time watching movies and smoking. He moved to Mumbai to become a filmmaker. “Staying in all day and reading about things made me take an unbiased look at myself and I realised that I didn’t come to Mumbai to become a filmmaker but to run away from my own self. The true happiness is in doing what your heart wants to do. You can never calm down your ego. It’s a thousand times better to be a good human than a famous one,” he wrote.

He signed off by writing, “I came back home and started preparing for a teaching course, which I also cracked. I am also involved in a lot of environmental work that brings me peace. I had alcohol last in 2016 and quit smoking last year also. Now I feel each day is like a celebration for me.”

Well, this is surely a case to learn from. The season 12 of ‘KBC’ is all set to premiere on the small screen very soon.
