Though Prashant played brilliantly throughout and became the first crorepati of season 4, he could not manage to take home the prize money of one crore as he went against the advice of his parents and expert and wanted to continue the game for the final jackpot question. He took a double dip lifeline but gave both wrong answers and fell down to 320,000 INR.
