Shedding light on his journey, Shridev shares, “After my accident in 2011, I found myself in a darkness called depression. But my childhood friend, who is now my wife, became my guiding light. Jaya showed me the way out of darkness, teaching me that love and determination can conquer even the hardest battle. Since then, I have never looked back. Jaya is the reason I found the courage to participate in a show like Kaun Banega Crorepati. On the set, Amitabh Bachchan didn’t just host the game, he became a beacon of support. He pulled my wheelchair, handed us tissues, and most importantly, he believed in my dream. He also thanked my wife, Jaya Wankhede, for standing by me during my darkest hours. In that moment, I realized that my fight was not just mine, it was shared by the countless people who have believed in me.”
