Taj Mohammed Rangrez created history by winning Rs. 1 crore in the seventh season of game show "Kaun Banega Maha Crorepati 2013" hosted by megastar Amitabh Bachchan. After the victory he says the people's perception about him had changed.

A history teacher, Rangrez said that people have now started calling him 'Crorepati Rangrez'.

"After my victory, after getting Rs. 1 crore on the show, people's perception towards me has changed. The way they look at me now is completely different from how they used to see me earlier," said Rangrez in a telephonic interaction from Fatehnagar, Udaipur, Rajasthan.

"When they see me they say 'It's the same guy, who is seen on newspapers these days.' They don't call me by my name, they use 'Crorepati Rangrez'," he added.

Rangrez, 42, is still in the celebration mode and says he still can't believe that he won a crore from the show, which is an Indian version of "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire".

"I still can't believe it. I never thought that I will win Rs.1 crore. I actually never thought that I will be able to reach Rs.6,40,000. Just entering the show and sitting on the hot seat with Amitabh Bachchan was enough for me," he said.

"When he said that I won Rs.1 crore, I started shivering. My wife was there with me on the show, she had tears in her eyes. It was all because of the cooperation by the Sony (channel) and KBC team. It's because of the wishes from my mother and sister," Rangrez added.

When asked how is he going to spend the amount, he said: "I first want to get my daughter treated from her partial vision impairment. Then, I want to buy a house. Also, I want to fund the marriage of two orphan girls. These three things are my priorities, rest will follow."

The episode featuring the first crorepati winner will air om September 15.
