Rani & Karan Johar on Paanchvi Pass – Sat 19th July, 9pm
It's fun-galore on Kya Aap Paanchvi Pass Se Tez hain? as the biggest stars of Bollywood descend on the small screen; Karan Johar, Rani Mukherjee and Shah Rukh Khan…
No, it is NOT Kuch Kuch Hota Hain? again; this time the trio have assumed different avatars and come together on India's biggest quiz game show Kya Aap Paanchvi Pass Se Tez Hain? in which Shah Rukh officially plays the role of the knowledgeable teacher and Rani and Karan are summoned as classmates.
On Saturday 19th July at 9pm, viewers will witness India's finest actor, Rani Mukherjee, and ace-director, Karan Johar, stumble into Shah Rukh's classroom quite unaware of what trouble awaits them in the form of eleven fifth grade questions, as they try to prove that they are smarter than a fifth grader on Kya Aap Paanchvi Pass Se Tez HainWhile the warmth, the funny repartees and camaraderie between the guests and host is the over-powering flavour of this celebrity special episode, it really does not help Karan and Rani win brownie points and impress the strict and intelligent teacher-Shah Rukh Khan who flummoxes them with his very first question.
As India's most celebrated actor and director struggle to get their facts right with the help of five 10-year-olds, Shah Rukh has a great time pulling their leg and making them beg for answers. Karan even gets down to his knees to beg for answers. "Hamari bahot beizzati hui hai yahaan par", Karan jokingly kept saying. When Karan and Rani tried to cheat from the audience, SRK gave them a fitting punishment by making them stand on the chair in the classroom.
There are many hilarious and emotional moments intertwined in the show. The most funny being where Karan reveals that, as a kid, he wanted to be a barber and cut people's hair when he grew up. This had the audience in split's thinking India's leading film director wanted to become a hairstylist at one point. He was refused admission when this question was asked in the schools.
On a serious note, Rani reveals that she always wanted to make it big but did not know which direction to go. She speaks of wanting to return plenty of happiness to her parents for all the hardship she has seen them face in her growing years. Karan and Rani played in true-sportsmanlike-spirit giving everybody their share of laughter, entertainment and fun. They won a handsome amount which they intend to donate partly to Nanavati Hospital and partly to another medical facility in the country of Rani's choice.
To catch this teacher-student scuffle, tune in to Kya Aap Paanchvi Pass Se Tez Hain? on Saturday 19th July at 9pm only on Star Plus.
