Meet the Dh50 million Mahzooz winner Junaid Rana

November 30, 2021

Almost everybody has dreamt of one day winning a life-changing amount of money. For most, however, it remains nothing more than that: just a dream. But for Junaid Rana, a 36-year-old Pakistani driver who grew up in Dubai, that dream became reality when he won Dh50 million ($13.6 million) after entering a Mahzooz weekly draw last month.

He’s gone from earning Dh6,000 a month as a company driver to now having the financial freedom that many people spend a lifetime seeking. One month on from his life-changing win, Mr Rana says he’s still coming to terms with the fact that he’s a multimillionaire and no longer has to work for anybody.

Host Felicity Glover is joined by Mr Rana, who talks about his future plans and how this life-changing amount of money will make a difference to his and his family’s life.
