Day – 3
The third round started with an energizer round where Prakhar started with a funny exercise where he projected that every one is in the mountain and the fire has engulfed the place which necessitates everyone to run. In order to give it an interesting look, he told them to run but they need to stop immediately by making a group of specific numbers after he called out that number. This was indeed quite a funny and hilarious exercise.
