India Poochega: Sabse Shaana Kaun? is an Indian reality game show hosted by actor Shah Rukh Khan. Adapted from the "Who's Asking?" international format, it opened on 2 March 2015 on Zee Network's newly launched entertainment channel &TV.[1] The format of the show is simple. Two pairs compete against each other for a winning amount of 10 million (US$140,000). They will first be asked questions by ordinary people. Once they clear that round, a galaxy of celebrities will ask the winning pair a set of questions. There are the usual lifelines and so on.[2]

Format[edit]

The show is a first of its kind where the common man will don the hat of the 'asker', as well as that of the contestant. While the 'askers' shall pose the questions, the contestants will be seen demonstrating their street-smartness to win big bucks. In the first round, the contestants have to look at options on the screen and pick a questioner for themselves. In the second round, the opposite team has to pick one for their competitors. The finalists will face a pyramid of 15 celebrity questioners.
