Lawyers, doctors no match to fifth graders in ‘Paanchvi Pass’April 15th, 2008 - 7:50 pm ICT by admin
New Delhi, April 15 (IANS) Well groomed confident adults with good educational qualifications and lots of experience were no match to the intelligence of fifth graders during a mock examination for STAR Plus’ upcoming reality game show “Kya Aap Paanchvi Paas Se Tez Hain”. Contestants were grouped according to their profession with students in one group. At the “All India National level ‘Paanchvi Pass’ examination”, held April 11 in Mumbai, the lawyers’ group scored the lowest - 50 percent.
The students came up trumps with 70 percent. The group of radio jockeys were second with 66 percent. The examination lasted 20 minutes.
Actors like Alok Nath, Reshmi Ghosh, Parul Patel, Manav Vij, Aaditi Gupta, Lubna Salim, Harshad Chopra and Abhaas Joshi also took the ‘Paanchvi Pass’ exam and their score was a mere 52 percent.
Sharing his experience, Harshad Chopra, who plays the lead role in STAR Plus’ “Kis Desh Mein Hai Mera Dil”, told IANS: “The whole experience was a lot of fun. I never thought that I would ever appear in an examination now. Some of the questions asked came to me as a shock. I had not even heard about a lot of the things.”
Those who took the exam included doctors, interior designers, MBAs, DJs, VJs, teachers, housewives, stockbrokers and bankers. They all fared worse than the students.
The show, “Kya Aap Paanchvi Paas Se Tez Hain” will be hosted by Bollywood super star Shah Rukh Khan and will start April 25.
