Mumbai: Multi-talented personalities Mini Mathur and Cyrus Sahukar have united after 4 years to be the host of integrated school quiz show Discovery School Super League (DSSL) POWERED BY BYJU’S- – The Learning App. Conceptualized at a never-before scale, the on-ground leg of DSSL has reached out to an unprecedented 12,300 plus schools touching over 43 lakh students in the age-group of 8 to 14 years across the nation.
The on-air six-episode phase of DSSL premieres April 28 on Discovery Channel, Discovery HD World, Discovery Science, and Discovery Kids. The quiz will feature teams from 29 states and 1 Union Territory (Delhi).
Speaking on the occasion, Mini Mathur, said, “I’m a complete quiz head and love being part of shows which unearth the true hidden knowledge potential of children of India. The role of a quizmaster is not as simple as it may seem – one needs to make the children comfortable &uninimidated so that they are unfazed with the occasion and can remember their facts as and when the time arises… and yet keep the energy of the game high. I am excited to be part of DSSL because the process of identifying team of each state has been very exhaustive. I admire both brands – Byju’s and Discovery and it is a pleasure to work closely with them. Byju’s is an amazing start-up story in the field of education while Discovery is a global leader in real life entertainment – to which my kids are also hooked to.”
“The scale of DSSL is amazing. The fact that the on-ground phase touched more than 43 lakh children, and only 60 made it to the TV round tells you a deeper story that the standard of quiz would be very high; the competition intense. I am excited to be amongst such talented bunch,” said, Cyrus Sahukar. “I look forward to hosting the quiz with close friend Mini Mathur and together we will make sure it turns out to be fun, exciting and an engaging show.
