It was an emotional moment on the sets of Kaun Banega Crorepati as Amitabh Bachchan made an earnest appeal for a very special hot seat contestant. The extraordinary story of Johnson Philem was so moving that it made even Big B have a lump in his throat.   

The upcoming 'Doosra mauka' episode will witness 30-year old Manipur contestant Johnson Philem make his way to the hot seat. Accompanying him will be the Deputy Editor of Aaj Tak, Sumit Awasthi. Johnson revealed to Mr. Bachchan that he was 18 years when he fell vicitim to cross firing in Manipur.

The incident took place on 20th September 1999. He had planned to go out with his friends to celebrate when suddenly a cross firing took place. Johnson tried to escape from the back gate of the restaurant when suddenly someone fired on him from behind and the bullet went in his back. Due to delay in his operation his lower part of the body got totally paralyzed. He added that he was in pain since 13-14 years, and he is now living on pain killers.

Also due to the intake of pain killers, there are some major side effects such as memory loss, hair fall and sleepless nights. After hearing his story AB appealed to all the doctors to please come forward and help him. He also promised to personally inquire and ask doctors about Johnson Philem's treatment.

 Later AB asked Johnson about his favorite actress and he replied Anushka Sharma. AB was quick to connect the call and Johnson smoothly asked her if she would go out for a coffee with him? Anuskha blushed but was quick to say yes. Johnson also gifted AB a white muffler signifying the symbolic coming together in a bond of friendship.

Watch the inspiring story of Johnson Philem this Sunday, Oct 6, 8:30pm only on Sony Entertainment Television (Sony TV).
