While talking about Bandish Bandits:

Abhinandan: Rajyasree, sing one line of any song you want, just one.

Rajyasree: No, now I don’t want to sing like that because you’ll get it doctored from the backend and make me sound bad. So, why will I do that?

Abhinandan: You’re the crappiest singer ever and I must say that much as I have problems with the place you come from, Bongs have music in their blood. It is very rarely that you’ll come across a Bengali who is either not vocally trained or [doesn’t] play an instrument very well.

Rajyasree: I play the piano very well.

Abhinandan: You do nothing and stop lying.

Rajyasree: No, no, I play the piano very well but I’ll sing one line of a song. “Saagar kinare dil ye pukare..." See! You’re making me laugh. It’s off beat?

Abhinandan: Dude, you're very bad, you shouldn’t try and sing. Okay, never mind. And don’t say that you can play the piano, your hands are too small to play the piano.

Rajyasree: No, I play the piano. I can play Chopin (pronounced “Shoh-pan”, with a nasal “n”).

Abhinandan: Ok, Chopin ki hogayi te pan.

Rajyasree and Abhinandan burst out laughing.

This and a whole lot of other stuff awful and awesome as Abhinandan Sekhri and Rajyasree Sen discuss the web series Bandish Bandits, Ramy and I May Destroy You; BBC Three Quickies’ sketch She’s Asking For It; the song Beyonse Sharma Jayegi; and a whole lot more.
