WATCH: Dubai construction worker wins 1 MILLION dirhams

A Dubai construction worker who earns AED1,700 per month has just become a millionaire. Nanhaku Yadav, from Ghazipur in Uttar Pradesh, won AED1 million in the Al Ansari Exchange Draw.

This is the moment that Yadav found out that he had won…

The 36-year-old has lived in Dubai for four years, supporting his wife and three children back home, keeping just AED500 for his own expenses.

“I even don't know how much AED 1 million is in (Indian) rupees. After hearing the good news, I immediately called up my family and told them, with tears in my eyes: 'Don't worry, I'm coming home soon. Our life is about to change," Yadav told Khaleej Times through a translator.  

He is planning to quit his job and go back to India in September.
