SRK's Take 2 on Television ---- "SRK == Creativity and Business Skills"

SRK is back on Television but with a different style , yet the show still is a gameshow and will check the intellect of Indian audience . The show is titled "Kya aap Paanchvi Paas se Tez hain ? " . As the name suggests it will have questions that will be asked to adults but their level would be that of a fifth grade student . And people will see that its not easy being a fifth grader . The show is an Indian Version of " Are you smarter than a 5th grader ? "

Each game is played by a single contestant who earns money incrementally based on a payout ladder by answering simple trivia questions, with the game themed as a school quiz.

The contestant is presented and entered in textbook for the grade level of the particular question. Some questions are multiple choice or true/false; others require the contestant to answer without any options.

Each correct answer moves the contestant up a payout ladder with a final bonus fifth grade question moving the contestant up one more step to the top prize. At any point up to the final question, the contestant may quit the game after seeing the question. For the final question, the contestant must decide whether to quit after seeing only the subject; if they choose to see the question, they must answer it.

There are five "classmates" in the game of approximately fifth-grade age who also answer each question in secret by writing their answers. These answers are sometimes used to create tension when the classmates answers do not correlate with the contestant's. Additionally, the contestant selects one of the classmates at the beginning of the game to help them during the game. Each classmate can only help for two questions, and then a new classmate must be selected.

The selected classmate provides the contestant with two "cheats", each of which may only be used once. The contestant may choose to "peek" at the classmate's paper, which allows them to see the classmate's answer before they give their own (once the peek is used the contestant must answer the question); the contestant may "copy" the classmate, which automatically locks the classmate's answer in as their own. In addition, the contestant has one "save" which comes into play after the contestant gives their first wrong answer. If the classmate has written the correct answer, they save the contestant; otherwise, the game ends and the contestant loses the game and wins nothing, unless they have correctly answered five questions, at which point they are guaranteed the fifth level of the payout ladder. The cheats are not available on the final question , additionally, once all three cheats are used, the chosen classmate returns to the group and no new classmate is selected. The classmates continue to write answers for the questions, however, to be used for tension.

Upon leaving the game either by quitting, or answering incorrectly, the contestant must profess to the camera, "I am not smarter than a fifth grader."

Above information is courtesy Wikipedia and according to me they are not going to change much since the "americans" don't allow to change the format much . I don't get one thing why all Game shows have to be copied from west . Cant they make something that West can copy from us . Big stars should force these people to device something new since they hold all the power .
They just don't want to take risk , follow what has been successful , even though the sensibilities of American and Indian audiences are completely different .

SRK is a true professional . He had three months off and he wanted to work as he kept on saying this on national television . He is a workaholic and workaholics are in great demand in today's world . He is in true sense an Idol for youth . Today SRK is trying his luck at anything and everything but this doesn't mean that he is just throwing himself just for money .

He is a strategist and a man with a king size dreams . His dreams are larger than his personal being and are also not selfish . I say so because he is recently involved in making Bollywood go Hi tech and make it at par with Hollywood in terms of SFX . He has recently signed people from the creators of "The Matrix" for creating a technical base in India for high quality Visual effects (VFX) . He has signed Anubhav Sinha (CASH) for directing his next venture as producer with a whopping budget of 100 Crores . He wants to create something like Industrial Light and Magic (ILM) of George Lucas of the west . Now he is also in IPL which is not only just a business proposition for him because he can't afford to lose 500 crores . He will work hard on that too and with his heart . It would be really interesting in watching SRK grow as a wholesome entertainer . No doubt in the years to come he might become a very powerful corporate as well as creative face of Bollywood . Creativity packed with Business Skills is a lethal combination and SRK has it .

My best wishes to SRK for all his ventures and I hope he succeeds in whatever he wants in life . Be as busy as you could possibly be .
