Talking about the Oppo ad:

Abhinandan: It ends with a line, “Let’s be the light in each other's lives.” So, on that note, Rajyasree, I have no idea what…

Rajyasree: I’m the light in your life, you’ll have to admit. I’m not the light in your life? My name means light of the kingdom.

Abhinandan: So nice. That kingdom of chudails you can go light up!

Rajyasree and Abhinandan burst out laughing.

This and a whole lot of other stuff awful and awesome as Abhinandan Sekhri and Rajyasree Sen discuss films The Trial of the Chicago 7 and Putham Pudhu Kaalai; the web series Scam 1992: The Harshad Mehta Story; and the controversy surrounding the film 800.

Tune in!

PS: Abhinandan and Rajyasree go back in time to when they first watched DDLJ.

Complaining about the media is easy and often justified. But hey, it’s the model that’s flawed.
