While talking about the film Sherni:

Abhinandan: If you can solve this mystery for us and you think you’re the cat’s whiskers...and get the fangs straight. I’ve replaced facts with fangs, you know.

Rajyasree: We understood.

Abhinandan: Just explaining to you. Then you can write to us at and tell us: is Sher a lion or a tiger, a cheetah or a papita? And then we might give you fruit salad but it may get spoiled by the time it gets to you.

Rajyasree: Now you’ve lost five subscribers who were listening to us. They've left.

Abhinandan: They’ve left? Why? The papita is too much.

Rajyasree: You’ve crossed the line over there!

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 Sherni and Haseen Dillruba; anthology web series Ray; the works of Dilip Kumar; and various commercials.

PS: Rajyasree thought Dilip Kumar starred in Sangam. Don’t miss Abhinandan’s laughter.

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