Wondering.. “Mera number kab aayega??”


Instant Millionaire

NBC has a TV show called “Minute to Win It” where the contestant can walk away with a cool $1 million if he is able to complete the challenges placed in front of him within a minute. After you complete 10 challenges successfully within the stipulated 60 seconds for each challenge, you can walk away being a million dollars richer which technically means 10 minutes or lesser decides if your bank balance will see a whopping increase or not!

This game show is a bit different from the run-of-the-mill shows which promise easy money where the contestant is asked a bunch of questions to which he/she is given multiple choices.

This game already has international versions in countries like Australia, Brazil, Germany and many more. In the past, “Who wants to be a Millionaire” inspired Sarcastic smile a number of game shows in India with the same concept. The most successful one being hosted by the Big B, Amitabh Bachchan, known as “Kaun Banega Crorepati”. So, there are high chances that this game show might also make it to the Indian shores. If the show does get rolled out on the Indian Telly, there will definitely be an Indian twist to the name which got me thinking of possibilities. Here are a few:

Instant Crorepati
Ek Minute Ka Sikandar
(Feminists might have a problem with this one)
Ek Minute mein Phakeer se Ameer Open-mouthed smile (Not sure if that will generate good TRP)
Ek Minute ka Tamasha
Ek Minute ka Jalwa

My current FB status reads:

Here are a few more (heard it from multiple people, sources unknown):
