Last time, a challenge was laid out by the makers of Phoonk, that if any viewer could dare to see the film sitting all alone in a theatre and not run out scared he will get a cash prize of Rs.5 Lakhs.
The contestant who took the challenge didn't even last for 30mins and ran out of the theatre. However, after the release, some people alleged that the contest was rigged and that they never felt fear while watching the film. So now, without going into a pointless argument on the same, the Phoonk 2 team has decided to open themselves to a scientific evaluation of that claim.
For Phoonk 2, an ingenious implementation will be used on the Contest, which in a very scientific way will measure the heart rate of the viewer. The participant will be fitted with an ECG machine while he is watching Phoonk 2 which will monitor his/her Heartbeat and Pulse rate and this will be shown live on a screen outside the theatre to both the Media and all concerned.
A normal person, according to professionals, has a certain average heartbeat and when subjected to any kind of an intense emotion, the beats will considerably go up. So if the challenger claims that he had no fear while watching Phoonk 2, the monitor will tell whether he is lying or not and on the other hand if he can control his fear and thereby his heartbeat, and not let it cross his normal heartbeat then he will get to win the cash prize.
The Phoonk 2 contest will be launched on 10th March on the official website www.phoonk2.in. This contest is restricted to only healthy people with no history of Cardiac disease and also only to people who are between 18 and 60 years of age.
