A request: Please don't try googling. If you Google, be sportive enough to say that you googled! This is to keep an even keel for the contest - as some members don't want to Google. Also, please mail me the answers to karthiksriram[at]gmail[dot]com.

1. Connect Arvind Samy and Surya. (Apart from acting in lead roles in Mani Ratnam movies.)

10. Apart from being from the same family (and perhaps looks too), Ilayaraja, Yuvan and Karthik Raja have a special link - what is it?

Good Luck!

The questions in Italics are tiebreakers, meaning if 2 or more people get same number of correct answers, the one who has answered more number of tiebreakers questions will be declared winner. If two/more people have same number of correct answers with same number of tiebreaker questions, the person who answered earlier wins.

Dude, Questions like 1 and 3 have more than one possible right answer. I guess you should consider the reasonable ones!
