Totally 56 members attended and 21 cleared the written. Then we need to fill
our details in the given form. Then they divided these 21 members into
3groups and conducted group discussion. From 21 members 12 members were
selected. Then easy writing was conducted but there was no elimination. Then
interview was conducted. Among 12 members, 7 members were selected.
Totally there were 4 rounds

4) Interview (hr+tech)

for me), java (output for given pgm), advance java (servlets).
GROUP DISCUSSION: - 7-9 mins
1st group topic – love marriage vs. arrange marriage.
2nd group topic –badsha or shansha (amitab or sharuk who is better).
3rd group topic – is sms polling required or not (e.g.:- in Indian idol).
They didn’t give us time to put points on paper. GD was started as soon as
topic was told. I was in 2nd group. I was late to speak out but told nice
One boy started Gd he was supporting amitab, his fluency was good. He took
example of kabi kushi kabi gam. He was the only one against to all of the
group members. I thought he would b the first person to b selected but he
was not selected. May b becz he was dominating others and was onesided.
Some other told abt kbc and kbc2.
Some other told abt their age differences.
Other told that it depends on the director who gave them character to play.
I told that we can’t compare each other.becoz every individual have their
own talents and they r different in there own way. Example I gave DON movie.
I also told that sharuk is young and by the age of amitab, sharuk can become
as great as amitab and may be more than him.
Also told some point against amitab abt the movie nishabd whr amitab played
negative role etc….
1person told that how can we say whether right eye is better than left eye…
At last I concluded the Gd as said above
