SRK returns to television with Star Plus’ new game show ‘Kya Aap Paanchvi Pass Se Tez Hain?’

Star India has announced, what it claims to be, India’s biggest reality game show, ‘Kya Aap Paanchvi Pass Se Tez Hain?’ The show also marks the return of Shah Rukh Khan to television after ‘Kaun Banega Crorepati’. As host of the show, SRK would be asking questions to contestants and the winner can take home the grand prize of Rs 5 crore.

The television game show is based on the international Mark Burnett format ‘Are you smarter than a 5th grader?’

Uday Shankar, CEO, Star India Pvt Ltd, said, “We are fortunate that the country has always given Star the mandate of taking television to the next level. We’ve done it time and again by launching a show like ‘Kaun Banega Crorepati’, by introducing a whole new time band in the afternoons, and by bringing people back to television on weekends. With a show like ‘Kya Aap Paanchvi Pass Se Tez Hain?’, it’s time to redefine Indian television yet again.”

He, however, refrained from revealing when the show would go on air.

Commenting on his association with the game show, Khan said, “I was very keen to do this show because of the educational aspect attached to it, which has been an integral part our culture. Once the decision was made, Star Plus was the only television platform I could think of that could take me to every single television home in this country.”

Star Plus is partnering with Synergy Adlabs for producing this show. Synergy Adlabs has in the past produced top quality format shows that included the ‘Kaun Banega Crorepati’ series 1, 2 and 3; and the game shows ‘Heartbeat’ and ‘Kamzor Kadi Kaun’.

According to a release issued by Star, ‘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?’ where grade-school level questions are put to adults from all walks of life, who attempt to relive their student days with success.

The essence of the show is the test that adults would be put to – answer primary school questions, the pressure of going back to school, and keeping their reputations intact.
