Dial One Aur Jeeto is an extremely popular game show hosted on Sahara One channel sometime back. The very gorgeous actress and anchor Mandira Bedi and one of the most popular comedian actors of the small screen Shekhar Suman hosted the show. The show was regarded as a very exciting and energetic one. It was also considered to be a show, which has high production values and had a glossy appearance due to its market aspiration appeal.

This particular concept also was very much beneficial for the program, as the instant reaction was known and necessary alterations were made.
Dial One Aur Jeeto also made use of the telephony medium at the fullest as it had a technically strong backend, which was also considered to be the strongest point of the show.

On the stage then they are offered huge prices, which include Tata Indo Marino Car, Diamond Jewelry worth Rs. 1lakh, Air-Conditioners, Color Television Sets, Washign Machines, Home Theater Systems, DVD players, Microwave Oven and many more. The participant is then asked seven questions on the show and with every wrong answer he starts loosing the prizes in an ascending order.
The second phase of the show Dial One Aur Jeeto is even more interesting and when the participant reaches the seventh stage he is offered a choice where he can play for the remaining prizes or he can give back the prize and play for the four briefcases which contains any amount of sum between Rs. 5000 to Rs. 500000. The telly viewers who also manage to send the short message service (sms) entries of all the six questions on time get a share from the amount of Rs. 1lakh. More and more audiences were drawn into the show as they can win prizes just by dialing into the show and not making any extra efforts.
