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. Keep an eye out for a teaser from our Khandaan channel where the hosts reviewed Made in Heaven (available now!)

You can find these really cool talks and more on our Upodcast Bollywood Edition feed, along with all our interviews with Bollywood celebs. Do subscribe if you haven’t yet.
