Slumdog becomes Millionaire by giving wrong answer

Slumdog Millionaire- is based on Indian diplomat Vikas Swarup’s novel "Q and A" which was changed partially to fit in the film story. The result was that Jamal ends up giving an answer to a question with wrong options.
Slumdog Millionaire
The question for the protagonist in Swarup’s book refers to Ankhiya Hari Darshan Ki Pyasi as the song by saint-poet Surdas. But the question in the film is a different one. It is about the song, “Darshan Do Ghanshyam Nath Mori Ankhiya Pyasi” that features in film Narsi Bhagat which was directed by Devendra Goel in 1957.

The song is based on one of the oldest ragas-Rag Kedar, was written by eminent Hindi poet Gopal Singh Nepali. Surdas, a contemporary to Narsi, wrote “Ankhiya Hari Darshan Ki Pyasi” which expresses a similar sentiment.

In the movie Jamal is asked to name the poet who wrote song Darshan Do Ghanshyam Nath Mori Ankhiya Pyasi during the show- Who wants to be A Millionaire? He has four options from the show host- Surdas, Tulsidas, Meerabai and Kabir.

Obviously, none of these is the right answer.

Aamir Khan refuses getting waxed at Madame Tussauds

Aamir Khan-Madame TussaudsWinners don’t do different things, they do things differently. This phrase perfectly suits the perfectionist Aamir Khan. He is known for his totally different approach from the current league of bollywood actors.

Aamir proved so recently when he turned down the offer to get waxed at the Madame Tussauds wax museum. Madame Tussauds had approached Aamir as they wanted to add another Bollywood bigwig to their existing collection of actors. Some of the big names of bollywood who have already been waxed are Amitabh Bachchan, Shah Rukh Khan, Aishwarya Rai, Salman Khan etc.

It is believed that Aamir declined the offer by saying that he wasn’t interested. He added that he leaves behind things that don’t interest him, as he has so many things to do. He wants people to see him through his films and nothing else.

Indeed a Genius!!!
