Abhinandan: “Abhinandan, I’m a huge fan of yours. I wish I was as articulate and funny as you.”

Rajyasree: Articulate?

Abhinandan: Clearly, Rajyasree...

Rajyasree: Oh, she doesn’t know the meaning of articulate. I’ll just...

Abhinandan: She doesn’t know the meaning?

Rajyasree: “Articulate” is not...You’re misusing the word.

Abhinandan: The word you are looking for is?

Rajyasree: Obnoxious!

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 film The Mauritanian; web series Maharani; Channel 4 docuseries Indian Summer School; Baba Sehgal’s Tape of You; the Licious ad featuring Anil Kapoor and Arjun Kapoor; and the Peugeot ad featuring Novak Djokovic.

PS: Don’t miss Abhinandan’s version of Shape of You.
