UNIVERSITY CITY, SHARJAH – With questions about stars, films, and scandals, the Indian Cultural Club hosted a Bollywood-themed trivia and scavenger hunt night Nov. 2.

The ICC held the “Bhoot Bangla” event on Zoom with approximately 50 attending participants. 

The event consisted of a spooky Indian-themed scavenger hunt where attendees were tasked to crack codes and reach the final acrostic puzzle to achieve the mega coda to win the game. The event went on to present Indian actor Shahrukh Khan’s movie launch party where attendees were asked to figure out which A-list celebrity had kidnapped Gauri Khan.

ICC Executive Assistant Manaswi Madichetty said that her favorite part was when a participant revealed the kidnapper, and the Zoom chat blew up. She added, “I also loved that people stayed for longer to have a conversation with us.”
