Do you have two left feet when it comes to dancing? Or is your bathroom the only place you can sing? Don't lose heart.

Indian television finally has a game show where singing and dancing take a back seat, and all that matters is your memory.

No, we are not talking about the star-studded KBC.At the swanky Park Royal hotel in the Capital on October 4, Star One unveiled Bol Baby Bol, a game show where you can win as much as Rs 25 lakh by just getting the lyrics right.

The crowd-puller, apart from the money of course, is singer and composer Adnan Sami, who was also the guest of honour at the event.

"This is a very different game show. Here people from all genres can take part, and not just those who can sing and dance," Adnan said. <b1>

"This is a genuinely unique concept, something that's never done before in this country," says Prem Kamath, VP Marketing and Communication, Star India Pvt Ltd.

Being produced by Fox Television Studios India, the first run will be for 26 episodes, the shooting for which has already started in Mumbai.

"We shoot for 26 episodes in the current format, and changes we think necessary will be incorporated from then on," Prem adds.

The game commences with the lead singer circulating amongst the audience, singing a song, and then stopping abruptly. The person who completes the lyrics gets selected for the buzzer round. In the buzzer round, Adnan will ask contestants one question based on a Hindi film song.

Going on the lines of KBC, the participants can win at every stage, and can also make use of three lifelines as the game progresses.

On being asked how different it was hosting Bol Baby Bol from judging a serious musical show like Super Singer, Adnan said, "It is an informal show with the host not stuck to his chair but mingling with the contestants and moving around in the audience.

"Super Singer was a serious show based on singing talents. But here, there will be questions related to the songs. It is a fun-filled concept with lots of music, of course. You can be a bathroom singer to be a part of this show."

So no need to polish your voice and no need to spend hours on dance practice. Just up the ante on your grey cells and you could walk out with the moolah.
