Gully Boy

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!)

Ep 26- Simmba, Gully Boy, Wanted

We are joined by Manish Mathur of Talk Film Society who outs himself as an early Ayesha Takia fan but is now an expert on all things M. Night Shyamalan-related. You can (and should) follow his hugely interesting podcast on the films of Shyamalan here. Asim will be on the next episode!

A Timeline:

  • 04.50  We meet Manish who immediately throws a cat among the pigeons by asking us which of the Khans would best collaborate with M. Night Shyamalan. While some of us run true to form, other replies (seriously, Amrita?) might surprise you.
  • 11.26 Sujoy gives us his quick thoughts after watching the massively successful Simmba directed by Rohit Shetty starring Ranveer Singh and Sara Ali Khan.
  • 19.30  The teaser for Gully Boy, starring Ranveer Singh, Alia Bhatt, and Kalki Koechlin, directed by Zoya Akhtar, is raising all kinds of hopes in jaded bosoms.
