Celebrating 100 years of Indian Cinema : A Quiz

Recently I hosted a quiz based on Bollywood at office and judging from the response I’d deem it to be quite successful. The quiz featured 4 rounds.

The “First” round:

This round featured a number of questions based on the many firsts of Bollywood. There were 3 questions per team with 2 questions without options (the relatively easy ones) which would earn the teams 5 points per right answer. 1 question which was relatively less easy would earn the teams 10 points if answered without options, or 5 points if answered after hearing the options.

My Two Senses:

A video clip would be played, which would have a different audio than the original. The teams will be awarded points as follows

10 points for guessing the song from the video

10 points for guessing an actor/actress from the audio

10 points each for the name of the movie of the audio and the video

Here are the videos I put together by merging an older video and a relatively newer song to a curious and hilarious effect. Have a look – each clip is approx. 2 mins long and let me know what you think of it.

Teesri Manzil:

A pair of actor/actress will be given, the teams must answer 3 movies starring them together, 10 points for each right movie, a bonus 10 points for a 4th movie.

Four degrees of separation:

A,B, C, D, E are all people, clues are provided for each and the teams have to guess all A through E ( 10 points each) and there is a question at the end which relates A & E together and an additional 10 point for that.


A is known as the king of Bollywood, also ranked by BBC as the most famous actor in the world (2011)

B has acted with A in what is arguably the longest running Bollywood movie in a theatre

C is married to B and is a Bollywood actor and the son of a famous action choreographer

D starred opposite C in the 2012 which featured the very poetic song “po po po po “

E was credited with Launching D’s career in Bollywood with the very fearless movie which was also credited to increasing the sales of a certain pain ointment.

Name the first time A & E starred together not just once but twice over!
