Deal Ya No Deal - The Format

In Deal Ya No Deal, the contestant faces 22 cash boxes, containing cheques varying from a measly amount to Rs 10 million. Without knowing the content in each box, he picks one, his to keep no matter what. The box stays sealed, as do the 21 remaining ones that are divided amongst other contestants. Who's holding the jackpot? Does the winner's box contain a stingy sum or an absolute fortune? Nobody knows...

For Deal Ya No Deal host Madhavan, this will mark as a comeback on the small screen. Madhavan has worked in serials like Banegi Apni Baat, Sea Hawks, Tol Mol Ke Bol and Ghar Jamai.

Viewers interested in participating in the show can do so by answering a question which will appear on the channel soon wherein they can call 190 44 242526 (your choice) or SMS 'Deal' to 2525, with the correct answer.
