Sunmeet Kaur Sawhney, a Punjabi woman from Mumbai, has emerged as the winner of Rs5 crore on TV game show Kaun Banega Crorepati 6 (KBC).

Sawhney, a home tutor and a resident of Mumbai, couldn't believe she had cracked the jackpot, until the show's host, megastar Amitabh Bachchan hugged her.

"I couldn't believe that I won! Mr Bachchan had to come and hug me for me to believe that I have won Rs5 crore. My husband also had to come and tell me," she said.

The episode featuring her victory will be aired next week.

Her plan is to donate a part of the money for prayer rituals. "I want to sponsor some rituals of our Punjabi tradition. So, a part of the amount will go there. We will decide what to do with the rest of it later," added the 37-year-old.

She hails from Chandigarh, but Sawhney has been staying in Mumbai since a few years now. Married to a small-time actor who has done some side roles in Hindi films, Sawhney has two daughters.

"We have rented a place in Mumbai and have been staying here since a few years," she said.

In the last season of KBC, Bihar-based Sushil Kumar had won the mega-prize of Rs5 crore.
