Talking about the Netflix series Bhaag Beanie Bhaag:

Abhinandan: Rajyasree, what was your calling in life? I mean what would be your Beanie moment where you could just say, “I’m going to go pursue my dream!”

Rajyasree: I wanted to work with animals. I wanted to work at the…

Abhinandan: Oh, in the kitchen you keep killing them and cooking them.

Rajyasree: That way only I was working. If I was given a job at the Gerald Durrell, this thing, there’s a sanctuary that’s there, like a zoo, I would have worked over there. Where the full island…

Abhinandan: What would you have done?

Rajyasree: I would have looked after the Pandas. I’d be like Tiger King.

Abhinandan: You would’ve what? Hug the Pandas? Like what is the work? I mean just being something…

Rajyasree: No, no, you hugging Pandas is also a job. I can be a Panda nanny.

Abhinandan: Panda nanny nahi panny. Acha theek hai ji! You know I always wanted to be a dancer. Now at my age you can’t coz you’re old.

Rajyasree: You can still be! Why don’t you raise money for Newslaundry by having a channel which is Nikku dancing and people will pay money to watch you dance more and more and that money will then…

Abhinandan: Jab tak paise chalenge basanti ke pao chalenge type?

Rajyasree: Haa, like that!

Abhinandan: Jude, what do you say? Jude, can we visualise a show like this?

Jude: No.

Rajyasree and Abhinandan burst out laughing.
