"Who has the better pheta?"

The team member assigned to perform this Roadblock must find the correct pheta worn by one of 50 men walking around Shaniwar Wada to receive their next clue. The Roadblock performers per team are underlined:

Teams must take an auto rickshaw to Equity Tower and find the Sony World showroom. There, teams must pick up a Sony High-Definition Handycam and record a video of a local telling a joke, then head back to the Sony World showroom and play the video on a television. If the staff judged the joke to be funny enough, teams will receive their next clue.

Choice A: Push
Teams must make travel by auto rickshaw to Datta Shinde Pottery Shop and load 75 clay pots on a cart and push it one kilometer to Rajkumar Provision Stores at Mahatma Phule Market. Teams must deliver at least 70 unbroken pots to the store to receive their next clue.

Only Ida & Tania chose this task.

At Desai Bahndhu Ambewale, teams would have the option to U-Turn a team. Geoff & Tisha used the U-Turn on A.D. & Fuzzie. Since A.D. & Fuzzie completed the Crush Detour, they would be forced to backtrack and complete the Push Detour before continuing.
