Kya Aap Paanchvi Pass se tez hain? Classmates revealed last night

MUMBAI: After months of stringent screening and many aptitude tests in Delhi and Mumbai, Kya Aap Paanchvi Pass Se Tez Hain? has hand-picked extremely smart, intelligent and spunky kids to be the classmates on the Paanchvi ki kaksha on the show that is hosted by none other than Shah Rukh Khan. The intelligent batch of classmates includes Shriya Sharma from Palampur, Dheirya Sonecha from Mumbai, Anubhav Motilal from Delhi, Shreeparna Ghoshal from Delhi and Milanjeet Singh Bhatti from Chandigarh.

Premiering on 25 April, 8 pm on Star Plus, Kya Aap Paanchvi Pass se tez hain? is a television game show based on the international Mark Burnett format 'Are you Smarter than a 5th Grader?'.

It's a question-based game that challenges adults to remember the lessons that they were taught in elementary school. The game takes on a classroom theme, with host Shah Rukh Khan at the head of the class. Five first to fifth-class students, called classmates, are on hand to help contestants earn high marks and win big money. The atmosphere is relaxed and almost casual, even while the possibility of winning a million dollars hangs in the balance. However, the pressure of going back to school for the participant, keeping their reputation intact and taking help from merely a nine-year-olds isn't going to be that easy.

Kya Aap Paanchvi Pass Se Tez Hain? on Star Plus is played by a single contestant, who attempts to answer questions taken from elementary school textbooks. Each correct answer increases the amount of money the player banks; a maximum cash prize of Rs 5 crores can be won.

Five classmates sit at school desks to start the game. The contestant selects one classmate to come up and stand at a podium next to her, to help out with answers during the game. All of the kids write down their own answers to each question as the game progresses to both help the contestant and add interest to the game. After every two questions, the contestant must choose another classmate to come to "the front of the class" and take the podium to help him/her if required. Notably, upon getting an answer incorrect or deciding to prematurely end the game, the contestant must state that they are, in fact, not smarter than a Paanchvi Pass.

The contestants can make use of their lifelines in three forms:

Taank Jhaank gives the contestant an opportunity to review his current teammate's answer before submitting his own.

Nakal means the contestant may opt not to answer the question at all, but rather, let his current teammate answer for him. Unlike the "Taank Jhaank" cheat, in this instance, the contestant cannot reject his teammate's answer & has to go with it.

Bachao, this cheat is triggered automatically if the contestant gives a wrong answer. If the contestant's current partner turns out to have the correct answer, the contestant is then 'saved'.

The only instance in which two cheats can be used on the same question is if the

contestant opts for Taank Jhaank, rejects the kid's correct answer, gives a wrong answer himself, and is then saved by the kid through Bachao. Other than this one scenario, the cheats must necessarily be used individually.

If the contestant makes it to the 11th and final question, he cannot use the classmate's help in answering the question even if any of his cheats have not been used.

The kids are bright and add fun, innocence and authenticity to the show. So, play along on Kya Aap Paanchvi Paas Se Tez Hain?, a show that will make for great family viewing with loads of entertainment and edutainment.Get ready to laugh and be laughed at when taking help from our five classmates, besides humbly accepting that, "I am not smarter than a fifth grader

Dheirya Sorecha
Age: 9 years
From: Mumbai
Dheriya is the naughtiest child in the Paanchvi Paas group. He aspires to become an actor. His acting skills, singing and
mimicry have been proven time and again, as he actively participates in school plays.

"Shah Rukh calls me Harry Puttar because I have specs like Harry Potter [Images]," grins Deriya.

Anubhav Motilal
: 9 years
From: Delhi

Anubhav is a die-hard Shah Rukh Khan and Hrithik Roshan [Images] fan. Give him a chance, and he'll break into a song and dance routine. But Anubhav has no acting dreams; he wants to become a chef.

The game is played by a single contestant, who attempts to answer questions taken from elementary school textbooks. Each correct answer increases the amount of money the player banks to a maximum of Rs 5 crores.

The contestant selects one classmate among the five, to help him with answers during the game. After every two questions, the contestant must choose a different classmate to help him out, if required.

The contestant can make use of three lifelines: Taank Jhaank gives the contestant an opportunity to review his current classmate's answer before submitting his own, Nakal allows the current classmate to answer for the contestant, Taank Jhaank lets the contestant use his current classmate's answer.

Bachao is triggered automatically if the contestant gives a wrong answer. If the contestant's current partner has the correct answer, the contestant is saved. If the contestant makes it to the final question, he cannot take his classmate's help even if his lifelines are unused.

Shah Rukh gets candid about his new stint as a host on 'Kya Aap Paanchvi Pass Se Tez Hain'(*PP').RESHMA S. KULKARNI


Do you want to create history on television through PP, as Amitabh did through KBC?

No; when I started with "Fauji", I never restricted myself by thinking that this is it. If you limit your achievements, you will not grow beyond a certain limit. Every new stint is a new challenge and I let it grow at its own pace, giving it my best. If it becomes history, that's an added bonus. Furthermore, I never compare myself with anyone and I say this with due respect to Amitji.

But what made you take up a stint as a quizmaster?

I love quizzing; I'm a quiz freak. If I was not an actor, I would have become a teacher. Also, I like this team — Siddharth Basu, Star Plus. So when they came up with this concept that included kids and the educative format, it got me interested. I have worked with Star Plus and Synergy in the past. It's an intelligent team which comes up with great concepts. The format reinforces the need and importance of education. When I am done with the shoot, I take all the questions home and then we have a quiz competition at my place with my kids and their friends. Another reason I accepted the show is because it has got a good mission. It can change someone's life for ever. The prize money is very high and can be useful to someone who really needs it.

Were you a good student in school?

Though you'll need to ask my teachers to get an honest opinion, I think I did fairly well; just that I was not a dedicated student; I used to study in the last few days. But I used to enjoy my studies like how I enjoy my work now.

So which was your most and least favourite subject?

I loved Geography and Biology but Geography was a bigger favourite. Geography is the science that you can feel around you everyday and that attracted me to it a great deal. The same was with Biology; it's so interesting to know how the living beings around us function. The human body especially is such a fascinatingly complex device! As for the least favourite one, I wouldn't say there was any, though I found physics a bit more challenging than then rest.

(However, when quizzed about the boiling point of water, King Khan promptly replied, "100 C and 212 F!" Acting modest, eh?)

Coming back to PP, why is it different, apart from the prize money?

Everything! We didn't want any duplication of KBC; so , right from the format to the prize money everything is different. In KBC, there was always a definite result — you either knew the answer or you didn't. In PP, you always think that you know the answer but it somehow doesn't come to you easily even though the answers are simple. Actually the simplicity of this game is what befuddles you, since adults are always so cocky and confident that they know everything but ask them a simple thing like how many bones you have in your body and they are nonplussed.

Are you open to doing more on TV?

Why not? It's where I started off, so the affinity is definitely there. If somebody approaches me with a concept that is exciting and I have time, I will definitely take it up. I'm open to all genres of entertainment. I never think that 70mm is big and 35mm is small. When it comes to the entertainment and visibility they provide, both are equivalent.

What kind of experiences do you have with the contestants on the show? Are you having fun?

I meet close to 120-150 people on this show and I feel blessed to have brought smiles on their faces. I hug them and kiss them; that is my way of showing my affection and I feel very good when I meet them also because, each one is such a unique person. It's a pleasure to meet such varied and intelligent personalities everyday.

And you are bombarded with gifts from them isn't it?

Oh yes! It's overwhelming to see the gifts that the contestants bring. I cherish them all. In fact, all through the season, I keep collecting the gifts I get and pin it in one corner on the set. And at the end of the season, I take everything home and then Gauri puts everything in my library area. That corner in Mannat is very, very dear to me. (smiles)

Do you plan to bring any celebrities from your IPL team on PP?

Yes Yuvraj Singh has agreed to be a part of the show if his schedule permits. I have asked Dhoni also. Preity Zinta, in fact, made a surprise visit to my place the other day and we had a ball playing impromptu quizzes; so she may want to come. I also want Kajol, Juhi Chawla, Madhuri Dixit, Saif Ali Khan, Kareena and Karan Johar to come aboard since most of them have kids and will relate to the format and then go on to have fun with their kids through it. I also wish to have my son Aryan and his friends come on the show. That will be fun.

How are you managing your schedule between IPL, PP and your Bollywood assignments?

By sleeping for four hours! I'm a labour class man (smiles) I work for 20 hours a day; if I work less than that, I feel my day is wasted.

Lately Salman and Akshay Kumar have stepped onto the TV bandwagon. Does it unnerve you?

Of course not. It's good for TV. I don't think it's a new trend at all. If I have come to television, that does not mean nobody else can come. The more the merrier. TV is a big medium, there's space for all. If someone has the affordability of time and money, then they should definitely come. I wish both Akshay and Salman the best.

Lastly, how do you react when people call you King Khan?

I get really embarrassed. I never call myself the King. I'm a mere worker, an employee of the audience who works very hard. There are many people who have contributed to making me what I am and I think they deserve the title collectively.
