Bihar's Sushil Kumar, who made headlines when he became the first contestant to win Rs.5 crore on 'Kaun Banega Crorepati 5', hasn't received his prize money yet. Megastar Amitabh Bachchan, host of the show, says the former's cheque is ready, but he wants it at the CNN-IBN Award ceremony.

'People asking why Sushil Kumar not paid his KBC win.. cheque ready, but he wants it at CNN-IBN Award ceremony in Delhi on 16th ..,' tweeted Big B.

'Also as per terms and conditions of Sony, they have to pay within 60 days of on air broadcast... So still time for expiry!' he further posted.

Sushil Kumar reportedly told a tabloid that people have been constantly approaching him for financial aids ever since he emerged victorious on the reality game show. However, he isn't able to offer any help as he hasn't received a single penny of the jackpot money he won.

'I haven't received a single paisa yet. Nor have I got any intimation or call from the channel as to when the money will reach me. I don't even know how much I'll get after tax deduction, etc. Basically, I am being flooded with requests to share the fund that I don't even have,' the tabloid quoted him saying.

Ever since the news flashed, people have flooded the micro-blogging site Twitter with queries.

Before his big win on KBC, Sushil Kumar used to work as a computer operator and tutor, earning a meagre Rs.6,000 per month.

The 27-year-old is married and lives in a big joint family with five brothers, five nieces and a nephew in East Champaran district in Bihar.

    HOW CAN THE ARTICLE WRITER CALL SUSIL KUMAR A 'SIMPLETON'?
    #
    The word 'simpleton' indicates a person who is foolish in nature, A idiot is often referred to as a 'Simpleton'.
    The writer of this article probably meant to use the word 'Simple'.
    The word 'simple' is used to indicate the quality of humility.
    A humble person may be called as a simple person.
