After using three lifelines — audience Poll, flip the question and 50:50 — Pranshu managed to reach Rs 50 lakhs question. He used fourth lifeline Ask The Expert to win Rs 50 Lakh. After answering the question, Pranshu became the second contestant to attempt Rs 1 crore question. However, he was not sure about the answer. Hence, he decided to quit the show.
