There are various ways to try and win quick bucks, such as buying a lottery ticket. The key word here is 'try', as to get those bucks you just may need luck too!
Luck does play a big factor in trying to get on the Sony TV reality show Kaun Banega Crorepati (KBC). It is luck which quite possibly will get you selected by the computer when you register for the show. Although you do need to brush up on your GK skills for the auditions, it is again luck which is likely to get you on TV to the first round, known as 'Fastest Finger First'. Here, again, it is luck which is likely to get you to be the one to have the fastest finger and onto the hot seat! Finally, it is luck which may just get you all easy questions - easy enough to reach the jackpot round. Finally, what luck if the jackpot question is also really easy!
Luck aside, you do need to prepare for KBC 7 as it is not the toss of a coin which will decide whether you win quick bucks on the show, but your general knowledge. Host superstar Amitabh Bachchan decided his own fate in the Bollywood blockbuster Sholay by using a coin having the same face on both sides, but on KBC 5 your fate is going to be decided by just one factor: the correct answer!
Here are some hot tips to decide your fate...
Top 5 tips to prepare for KBC 7 2013
1. Read, read, read....that's right! If you have never bothered to read the newspaper before other than one or two pages, then for KBC 5 you will need to read it from end to end to keep in touch with current affairs. KBC questions always include a few on what is happening right now. So, for example, you should be aware of not just who won and lost the 2011 Cricket World Cup final, but also who won the Padma Shri awards, who Anna Hazare is, the Lokpal Bill is being drafted for what, etc. Yes, no harm in buying a few GK books too!
2. Get in touch with India's culture and heritage: Know about major monuments, dance forms, theatre personalities, etc.
3. Find out trivia about stars from the film world - Bollywood, Tollywood, Kollywood, etc.
4. Get all details about India's identity - national symbols and emblems, national buildings, festivals, famous pilgrim centers, etc.
5. Read up on mythology: At least one mythological question is definitely asked every year, so learn about Gods and Goddesses, their various names, their weapons, the names of pujas, etc.
