Prashant Batar was a contestant in Kaun Banega Crorepati. He was KBC 4's first crorepati, but lost Rs. 9,680,000 and leaves with Rs. 320,000 after answering the bonus and real final question wrong, becaming the second Indian contestant to miss the final question. He is the first worldwide contestant to use the Double Dip lifeline on the final question, before Sushil Kumar, Sanmjeet Kaur Sahan, and Achin and Sarthak Narula, who all won the top prize on their first guess.

Had he gotten his bonus question right, he would have been the first person on Kaun Banega Crorepati to win 5 crore. Almost a year later, Sushil Kumar was the first to win 5 crore.
