Slumdog Millionaire

While working as a telemarketer, Jamal calls Salim and meets him at a construction site. Salim reveals that he is working for an Indian mob boss and carries out executions for him. Jamal asks him where Latika is and Salim tells him that she's gone. The next day, Jamal follows Salim to the mob boss' house and finds out that Latika is working there as his maid. She tells Jamal to forget about her, but Jamal says he will wait at the train station for her. While Jamal is waiting there, he sees Latika, but she is taken away by mob henchmen. The film then skips to present day, where Jamal is on "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?" and is being interrogated by police because they think he cheated. Jamal tells them that the only reason he went on the show was to find Latika, because he knew she'd be watching. Sure enough, Latika and Salim are watching the show at the mob boss' house. Salim gives Latika his phone and tells her to go to the studio and that he will cover for her disappearance. Latika leaves, but gets stuck in traffic and can't make it. On the final question, Jamal phones a friend and calls Salim's phone. Latika answers, but she doesn't know the answer. Jamal doesn't care and is just happy he found her. Jamal correctly guesses the right answer and wins. At the same time, the mob boss, watching the show, realizes that Latika left and tries to find Salim. Salim takes the mob boss' money, pours it into a bathtub, and gets into it, holding a gun. The boss comes in and Salim shoots him. The mob's men then shoot Salim dead. Jamal is at a train station after the show and sees Latika. They finally reunite and kiss.

Question: What was the point of Jamal explaining the cost of pani puri? Did he really not know the answer to the simple question?

Answer: I believe it was to demonstrate that as a "slumdog" he knew some things but not others. He obviously did not know the answer to the question asked on the game show that the police chief asks him about, so to defend himself, he proves that he DOES know some things: just things that not everyone knows.
