    Ep 239- “I’m coming back to the movies I want to do…” Parineeti Chopra talks Kesari

    Ep 239- “I’m coming back to the movies I want to do…” Parineeti Chopra talks Kesari

    This episode we’re talking to Parineeti Chopra who is starring with Akshay Kumar in this week’s Hindi release Kesari.

    Kesari is about The Battle of Saragarhi in 1897 between Sikh soldiers of the British Indian Army and Pashtun Orakzai tribesmen.

    Parineeti’s debut was in 2011 with Ladies vs Ricky Bahl and her career has seen some ups and down which we discuss in our chat.
    We talk and about her likeability as an actor, if she pushes back against that image and if that sense of familiarity can turn toxic. We also talk about why she wanted to be part of Kesari and the sudden prevalence of historical movies being made in India lately.

    Ep 238- Reema Kagti and Alankrita Shrivastav Interviews- Made In Heaven

    Made in Heaven is the new Amazon series from Excel Entertainment. Written by Zoya Akhtar and Reema Kagti, this critically acclaimed miniseries follows two wedding event planners in glitzy, high society Delhi as they battle their personal demons while simultaneously serving as front row audience to some of the most deep-rooted problems facing Indian society. It’s rich people behaving badly - in a recognizably Indian way.
    This episode features two interviews: one with Reema Kagti and another with co-creator Alankrita Shrivastav, where we spoke about the challenges of long form narration, the democratization of streaming platforms and how to create content when freed from the shackles of Box Office and censorship.
