After facing the question, Jaskaran said, ”Sir I have not heard of the them before. Mythologies such as the Mahabharata or Ramayana are on television. I have watched the shows B. R. Chopra’s show Mahabharata and Ramanand Sagar’s Ramayana. It’s very difficult. I quit.”
The correct answer to the question was Prabhanjana.
Speaking about the answer in detail, host Big B said: “It’s mentioned in the Puranas, that documents social, cultural, religious, and political views. This story is a part of Padma Purana. It goes like once upon a time, King Prabhanjana killed a deer, when she was feeding her child. The deer got upset and cursed King Prabhanjana to lead a tiger’s life for 100 years.”
