What Question Should You Ask?

Puzzles are not always about answering a question. Sometimes it is also about asking a question. Try asking the right question to solve this problem.

You are in a room with 2 doors. Behind 1 door is a coffer overflowing with jewels and gold, along with an exit. Behind the other door is an huge, hungry lion that will pounce on anyone opening the door. You have no clue which door leads to the treasure and exit, and which door leads to the lion.

In the room there are 2 more individuals. The first is a Sachcha, who always tells the truth, and the second is a Jhoota, who always lies. Both of these individuals know what is behind each door. You do not know which individual is the Sachcha, or which one is the Jhoota. You may ask one of the individuals exactly 1 question. What should you ask in order to be certain that you will open the door with the coffer behind it, instead of the hungry lion?
