New Delhi, Oct. 8 -- The Narula brothers wanted to do something "so amazing" that it would put them in "Delhi's elite club". But they'd now go down in history as the ones to have won the biggest prize money on a TV game show - after they won seven crore rupees on Kaun Banega Crorepati, recently.

"It has yet to sink in," says Achin, 28, adding, "I had been trying to get to the hotseat for the past 10 years. I got shortlisted in the initial rounds several times, but never for the final round. But I kept trying. And when I finally I got selected for the jodi special with my brother, we thought if we get ' 25 lakhs, that'd be great."

And now that they have a couple of crores between them, they still haven't decided what to do with the money. "It's a lot of money that I won overnight," laughs Achin.

But there are a few things he knows the family needs. "We can now take better care of my mother, who had ovarian cancer. We might buy a new house, since ours had to be sold off after my dad incurred losses in business."

Apart from people approaching him for tips on winning, he is being approached for marriage, too! "There's a sudden increase in number of people who want their daughter to marry me," he laughs. There's only one regret. "I got really nervous on meeting Amitabh sir. He is so humble, comforting and amazing; I wish I could tell him that. I also wanted to request him to make me talk to Aishwarya (Rai Bachchan)."
