Star Plus - Kya Aap Paanchvi Pass Se Tez Hai? Season 1, 2

Kya Aap Paanchvi Pass Se Tez Hai? is a studio-based game show in which succeeding contestants compete for a large sum of money by attempting to answer questions taken from primary school class materials. The format outlined below is how the show works. Game Play Each round is played by an individual contestant, who is presented with the chance to win up to Rs 5 crores by answering 11 questions taken from class materials (e.g. textbooks or workbooks) of first to fifth class. The contestant is presented with 10 subject cards, which he may answer in the order of his choice.

Each correct answer moves the contestant higher up the ladder of rupee value. If a contestant answers all 10 questions correctly, he is given a chance to answer an 11th question for Rs 5 crores. Each time a question is answered, the contestant must lock in the answer by saying it out loud and pressing a buzzer. As each new question is read, the contestant is given the option to drop out with the amount of money currently in his bank. If the contestant chooses to answer the question, but gives the wrong answer, he walks away with nothing (during questions 1-5) or with Rs. 2, 00,000 (value of question 5). The above mechanism varies on the 11th question, if the contestant should reach it. The 11th question is drawn from a separate pool of class five questions. Unlike previous questions, the contestant must commit to answering or walking away based on the subject alone.

He or she will not be allowed to hear the question before making this decision. The contestant also has three lifelines called cheats to use over the course of a round. All these cheats involve his classmates, which is a group of children seated on stage who are answering the same questions as the contestant. Every two questions, a new classmate joins the contestant and becomes his teammate for those two questions. The contestant can use his cheats at any time during the first 10 questions. Cheats The first cheat is called Taak Jhaak, which means that the contestant has the opportunity to review his current teammate's answer before submitting his own.

The second cheat is Copy, in which the contestant may opt not to answer the question at all, but rather, let his current teammate answer for him. Unlike the copy your classmate cheat, in this instance, the contestant cannot reject his teammate's answer, but is stuck with it. The final cheat is 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 chooses Taak Jhaak, rejects the kid's correct answer, gives a wrong answer himself, and is then saved by the kid. Other than this one scenario, the cheats must necessarily be used individually. Once all three cheats have been used, the kids will stay in the class and no longer join the contestant at the podium. If the contestant makes it to the 11th and final question, he must tackle that question without help, even if he has not used his cheats.

Meet the first woman to win Rs 1 crore in Paanchvi Pass

Pragjyoti Samal and ShahRukh Khan
Pragjyoti Samal, a 24-year-old computer engineer from Bhubaneshwar, Orissa, is the first person to win Rs one crore on Star Plus' Kya Aap Paanchvi Pass Se Tez Hain.

Pragjyoti talks to Rajul Hegde what a crore means to her, and how she plans to spend the money.

Tell us about yourself.

I used to work with a software company called Cognizant Technical Solutions in Kolkata for the last two years. I quit 15 days ago to move ahead in life. But this is not because of winning the money. My father is a retired army officer and my mother is a university professor. My brother is also with the army. I have a younger sister as well.

You are the first contestant on Paanchvi Pass to win Rs one crore. How does it feel?

I shot for this episode on May 5. Since then, I'm on cloud nine! I went to the show with the objective of winning some money. But I never thought I would win a crore. It was a big surprise to everyone on the sets. Everyone was excited, and weeping with joy when I won. People in the audience were just waiting for someone to win.

How was your experience with ShahRukh Khan [Images]?

I am not a very big fan of Shah Rukh but I have watched his films like Swades [Images] and Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham, which I liked.

Initially, I was nervous. But when I met him, he made me very comfortable. I felt he was a friend, who I'd met weeks ago. I never felt that I was meeting the Badshah of Bollywood. Now, I am a big fan of him and respect him even more.

Pragjyoti Samal and ShahRukh Khan in Paanchvi PassHow was the experience on the show?

I am happy that I won a crore but what made me happier was that I got an opportunity to take part in the show. I've always believed in my intelligence and I was very enthusiastic about going back to school in the show. I was always a good student in school and college.

We shot for an entire day. The kids were amazing and everyone was very supportive. It was such a good opportunity to meet wonderful people from the audience, channel, production house, children and Mr King Khan [Images].

What will you do with the winning amount?
I still have not received the winning amount. I will not get the full amount, as one third will be deducted for tax. I have not decided what I will do with the money. I would use about Rs 10-12 lakh for my higher education in India or abroad. I will invest the rest. I will definitely use it wisely; maybe buy property or something.

Did you tell your family and friends about your win?

Only my mother, who was on the show with me, knows. I have not told anyone else. There is a big shock in store for them when they watch the show. My office colleagues knew that I had participated in the show and won some amount. But they did not know the actual figure. They were trying to find out and kept asking me whether I can buy a flat or a Mercedes car with the winning money. I told them to keep guessing.

How important is this money to you?

I wanted to do something in life but couldn't because of financial problems. This money is my freedom and will help me pursue my dreams.

Pragjyoti Samal and ShahRukh Khan in Paanchvi PassDo you think your lifestyle will change now?[​IMG]

I don't think so. I am a simple person. When we used to hangout with friends, we would think twice before going to Cafe Coffee Day. Now, that will not be the case.

When I returned to Bhubaneswar from Kolkata, my train got cancelled due to heavy rains. I spent the whole night on the platform. The next day, it was cancelled again but I waited for the train. If it is urgent, I travel by flight but if I have the time, I will not spend money unnecessarily.
