"Let's Make a Deal" was adapted in India as "Khullja Sim Sim", which was hosted by Aman Verma.

In the early 1960s, he was developing game shows and joined forces with TV veteran Stefan Hatos.

It was a show dedicated to the idea that everyday folk - people like you and me! - would gleefully make themselves look foolish for a chance at a big cash prize. It ran on NBC, ABC, in syndication, and in a nighttime version, finally being revived in 2009 with Wayne Brady as host.
