Awful and Awesome Ep 323: Khufiya, Beckham, Vimal ad

The pop culture podcast that isn’t afraid to pop the bubble.

WrittenBy:NL Team

While discussing Beckham:

Rajyasree: I really liked the documentary. (sarcastically) Because I’m a big fan of football, as you know. 

Abhinandan: As all Bengalis must be. 

Rajyasree: The last episode has all the footballers I know – Figo, Ronaldo, Zedan...

Abhinandan: Chima Okorie...

Rajyasree: I thought he was Bengali for the longest time. 

Abhinandan: Yes, honorary Bengali. 

(Both crack up.) 

This and a whole lot of stuff awful and awesome as Abhinandan Sekhri and Rajyasree Sen review the movies Khufiya and Fair Play, the documentary series Beckham, and the new Vimal ad.
