The universality of a quiz-show brings about cohesivity in viewing making it enjoyable and enhances captive engagement. Featuring real people and stories that showcase their aspiration and reason to win a substantial sum makes for a compelling content proposition.”

We’re luring audience to a form of entertainment that keeps them engaged as well as invested. While the format of the game remains unchanged, we’re scaling up the production and sprucing our treatment to make it more delightful for viewers across genres and milieu; and are also bringing back on board the indomitable superstar Puneeth Rajkumar who will multitask as a host, a friend and a guide.”

The auditions for the show which were carried out in Hubli, Mysore, Davangere, Mangalore and Bangalore saw an overwhelming participation from aspirants.

Taking over the mantle of the host and quiz master yet again, said, Puneeth Rajkumar, “The thought of making a common man a ‘Kotyadhipati’ is an enticing concept. The show is fueled only by knowledge and that is what makes it so promising and gratifying. It will be heartwarming to see so many dreams come true on this platform. Looking forward to meet some stimulating minds on the hot seat.”
