Because this week only students will be on the hotseat, so rupees have been replaced with points on the show. On being the first student to win 50 lakh points, Manas Gaikwad shares: "I believe that 'Kaun Banega Crorepati' is a prestigious platform that channelises students to gain more knowledge, gain respect, chance to interact with a great personality like Amitabh Bachchan sir as well as money for better future." Manas aspires to become an entrepreneur and has been the city topper for National Science Talent Search Examination, zonal topper for National Cyber Olympiad and has won various accolades for singing and inter-school competitions at zonal and national level. He adds further on his ultimate target in life and utilising his money to create technology related to conversion of salt water to drinking water. He adds: "My dream is to become an entrepreneur and have my own start-up. I will use the amount that I've won (50 lakh points) after I turn 18 years old and invest it into my start-up. My start-up will create technologies related to conversion of salt water to drinking water using renewable solar energy that is carbon-free and utilise technologies like hydroponics, that is a type of horticulture or aquaponics that combines aquaculture (the growing of fish in a closed environment) with hydroponics to grow food.
