Are You Indian? Author Sanjit Singh aka Bad Swami talks to Upodcast

Sometimes you come across a book that comes so close to your personal experiences growing up that it feels like the author has been following you your entire life in a Truman show kinda way. But rarely is there a book that combines that personal journey for Asians with such humor and insight.

Sanjit Singh, who a lot of people might know his from his twitter alias Bad Swami or comedy website, has just written “Are You Indian? A Humorous Guide to Growing Up Indian in America” and he was our guest on this episode of Upodcast chatting to us about growing up as an Asian kid in America and how it differs from growing up in Europe, how he came about writing his book and a host of other topics in this hilarious yet soul searching chat.

 

You can head over on to amazon or his website to see some of the amazing reviews he has been getting, and his book is definitely a strong recommend by the Upodcast team.

Karan Johar and the cast of Student of the Year Upodcast Interview

For the promotion of Student of the year, Karan Johar accompanied by Sid Malhotra,Varun Dhawan and Alia Bhatt flew over to London to talk to the UK press and Upodcast was invited.

If you have ever seen a full press conference it’s pretty hard to get a non rehearsed answer out of the celebrities especially so if they have the quick wit and verbal prowess of Karan Johar, nevertheless we had a 1 one 1 interview where we could ask a few more personal questions.

Student of the Year is in theaters from today and I hope you enjoy our interview with Karan and the rest of the cast.
