Kousalya Khartika from Madurai recently became the first crorepati in the Tamil version of KBC which is hosted by Radhika Sarathkumar.

Kousalya, who is hearing and speech impaired, works in the Principal District Court of Madurai as a junior assistant. Although she has been dependent on her family members for her day-to-day needs, Kousalya says that she has been “determined to learn and excel” in whatever she wishes to do.

She said: “I have always depended on my family members for my day-to-day life. But, right from my childhood, I have been determined to learn and excel in whatever I do. I truly thank Colors Tamil for giving me the opportunity to participate in the show and fulfil my dreams. It was an exhilarating experience being on the hot seat with Radikaa Ma’am who made me extremely comfortable. I am more than honoured to be part of this iconic game show and equally proud to tell the world that ‘I am now a Kodeeswari’.”
