Hidden Facts of KBC

The third series of KBC has just been finished. But recently I got some amazing facts about this popular TV show by some email forward. It is regarding Kaun Banega Crorepati - 2 (KBC 2), but it worth to be known by every desis. Here it goes:

You all know it's a good business. But have you ever pondered... How Good??

Any guesses?? Let's see...

Airtel is charging Rs. 6 per SMS sent for this contest.

Assuming there are only 100 entries from say 10 cities of some 20 districts and 20 states...

6(Rs/SMS) x 100(entries) x 10(cities) x 20(districts) x 20(states) = 6 x 100 x 10 x 20 x 20 = Rs.24,00,000

24 lakhs in 20 minutes. (People trying for the 2 lakhs cash prize)

Imagine what if 1000 entries try out from 100 cities????

The figure simply grows by 2 more zeroes and yields a whopping 24 Crores!!!!

And it does not stop there...

In practice it could be another multiple of 100 or worst case a multiple of 1000 on an average.

In that case it is 24 x 100 crores earnings in just 20 minutes on every episode!!!

And the prize money : mere 2 crore (and from whose pocket)

And the best part of this calculation is just the SMS earning!!

What about the Ad money ???

A rough annual profit calculation goes like this:

2400 x 5 x 4) (episode/month) x 12 = 5,76,000 crores.

Let even 50% get dissolved in taxes and other payments, still you will be left with (which includes even the meager 480 crores of prize money. i.e., if every episode bags 2 crore prize)!

.......2,88,000  crores profit (only from SMS)
