"I was very nervous when I wasn't able to make it to the hot seat in the second last episode also and felt I would have to go home empty-handed. But then I aced the fastest finger first round and made my way to the hot seat.

"I didn't feel as the Rs one crore winner until the audience clapped and Bachchanji hugged me. It is a great feeling," Firoz said.
