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

WrittenBy:NL Team

While discussing headlines:

Jayashree: Does your fandom of Akshay Kumar extend to you watching his movies?

Rajyasree: No, that’s too much. I just think he’s a very good-looking man. 

Jayashree: I think the last Akshay Kumar movie I watched was Garam Masala, 20 years ago.

Rajyasree: I have nothing to say to that. 

This and a whole lot of awful and awesome as Rajyasree Sen and Jayashree Arunachalam discuss the films Amar Singh Chamkila and Aattam, and the series Baby Reindeer.
