Salman Khan driving the success for Dus ka Dum?

After the IPL, entertainment has got a new addition with Sony starting a new show “Dus Ka Dum” which has already created lot of interest. Salman Khan made his debut on the small screen with “Dus Ka Dum” which is based on the International show “Power of 10” hosted by award winning comedian Drew Carey. This show is very unique in terms of the fact that an individual does not require a knowledge base and an educational qualification to be a part of this show. The only thing needed is that the players have to think like an Indian ,i.e. like a common man or the audience in the show!

The format of the show is such that a question would be asked, the answer to which would be the average percentage of a mass opinion poll conducted across India. If the contestants guess the correct answer in accordance with the collective opinion of India, they would start winning from a starting amount of ten thousand rupees and the answers given by the contestants will make them rich or poor by the power of tens.

Dus Ka Dum like other shows “Kaun Banega Crorepati” or “Kya Aap Paanchvi Paas Se Tez Hain” has starting inviting celebrities like Aamir Khan and also the very interesting look alike of Salman Khan, Yuvraj Singh and many others.

The best part of “Dus Ka Dum” is that it is not a quiz unlike “Kya Aap Paanchvi Paas Se Tez Hain” or a “Kaun Banega Crorepati” which required a certain knowledge quotient on the part of the contestants. Salman is seen to build a close bond with the participants by using local lingo such as “Chaap Do” instead of “lock kar diya jaye” or “Freeze kar diya jaye” which were used by Amitabh Bachchan and Shah Rukh Khan respectively in Kaun Banega Crorepati.

Salman has established a very good connect with the’ common man’ of India and the same reflects in the degree of comfort of the contestants who shed their inhibitions once they play the game with him! He to a great extent has carved a niche’ for himself in the Indian television’s reality shows by his novel and down to earth approach.
