Recently DFCC Bank launched the first volume of quizzes from its award winning reality TV quiz show — DFCC MindStar.

The initial copies of the book were presented to students of Sri Jayawardanapura Girls’ and Boys’ school by the General Manager of DFCC Bank Nihal Fonseka. 

The DFCC MindStar Quiz Book includes questions from the first 15 shows broadcast on ITN. Among the questions in the first volume are three questions that helped contestants win a million rupees each. It also includes a collection of background facts and information on the questions and answers provided on the show.

Speaking at the launch DFCC Bank General Manager Nihal Fonseka said: “DFCC MindStar has been a proud achievement for our organisation. To have been able to conceptualise and produce one of Sri Lanka’s most innovative and popular reality TV shows is truly remarkable for a long standing financial services organisation. MindStar was meant to create a path towards a knowledge based society by whetting viewer appetite for new information. In the process, the Bank has begun to build fruitful relationships with viewers. It’s a win-win situation and it is working for both sides.”

“DFCC MindStar is an investment for future generations” said Ravindra Randeniya, Host and Master of MindStar ceremonies.

Randeniya added “MindStar has been able to make a revolutionary change in the way reality shows are perceived. When the show is on, TV viewers challenge themselves and test their knowledge against the contestants.  I’m grateful to the DFCC Bank for devising an excellent framework for this contest; the multiple choices, the interesting helplines and the valuable prizes have all added to the glamour of the show.”     

The first volume of the DFCC MindStar question and answer booklet is now available at all DFCC Vardhana Bank branches. The run up to the second season of MindStar is currently broadcast on ITN every Saturday at 9 p.m.
