Nizamudeen won with ticket number 278109 purchased on September 26.
However, Nizamudeen, who has given an address of Kollam district of Kerala state, couldn’t be reached by the show host on both of his contact numbers.
An automated message in English and Malayalam languages said the incoming call facility was unavailable and will be resumed after recharge. Another contact number was not reachable.
The organisers said they will continue to try and contact Nizamudeen.
