While talking about Lucy in the Sky:

Abhinandan: Other than technology, it’s all become easier to go to the moon, Rajyasree Sen, because the moon now is closer than it was.

Rajyasree: Oohhh! Is this your input? Because you did not watch either film.

Abhinandan: So, every year the moon will get closer till [after] two and a half billion years, it will just smash into the earth. Do you know that?

Rajyasree: But there will be no earth then, na? We’ll be like a rock because we’ll have killed everything on this earth.

Abhinandan: Do you know that?

Rajyasree: No, because I think you’re making it up now.

Abhinandan: Ahh, you’re right! It was worth a try.

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 films Laxmii, First Man and Lucy in the Sky; the Tanishq Diwali ad controversy; and various commercials.

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