Talking about the character Wenwu played by Tony Leung in the film Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings:
Mansa: Tony Leung (“luhng”) is a scene stealer, pardon if I’m pronouncing his name incorrectly.
Abhinandan: You are sitting with Abhinandan and you’re apologising for the pronunciation? Like seriously!
Inderpreet: It’s Tony Leung (“loong”).
Mansa: Really? He Wenwu’ed us with his performance.
Abhinandan: In fact when he appeared in that other film...
Mansa: He’s known for his collaborations with Wong Kar-wai.
Abhinandan: No no no. Leung...He did a song ya, with Deepika Padukone. Lungi dance, Lungi dance (sings).
Inderpreet bursts out laughing.
Abhinandan: I wish our listeners could see the look on Mansa’s face. She’s like, “Kaha baitha diya uncle ke saath, itne bhadde joke.”
This and a whole lot of other stuff awful and awesome as Abhinandan Sekhri and Newslaundry subscribers Inderpreet and Mansa K enter the Marvel Cinematic Universe with the films Shang-Chi and Black Widow; and web series Loki and WandaVision. They also discuss the thriller Red Sparrow. Abhinandan is also joined by the creators of the 2021 Cadbury cricket ad, which is a remake of the 1993 advertising classic.
PS: Don’t miss Abhinandan’s encounter with Gen Z.
