Anuvab Pal is one of the funniest people I know (the delightfully dry kind) so I was thrilled to hear that he has come up with a spanking new web series which he co-wrote with Kunaal Roy Kapur, Rohan Sippy, Sid Kumar and Anand Tiwari. Prepare yourselves for a very different kind of Bollywood chat show. The kind that doesn’t let anyone take themselves too seriously a la Between Two Ferns with Zach Galifianakis *drumroll please* I give you Kutting with Kunaal *LOL*
PS. Anand Tiwari you kill me. Best. CEO, CFO, COO & CHH Ever. (Just look at that face!) Also my favorite character from The President is Coming – especially the scene where he animatedly recites stock names as his “talent” Pure genius! :)
Anuvab says, “Producer Rohan Sippy, actor Kunaal Roy Kapur, director and playwright Sid Kumar and I were sitting around thinking about how to do a different spin on the Bollywood talk shows where everything is nice and complimentary. This is our attempt. We’ll try to take incompetent situations and hopefully make it uncomfortable. Scripted, of course, and with our stars who’ll be in on the joke and sharing it with us. Our first guest, star Ayushmann Khurana was a great sport and had super comic timing.”
Rohan Sippy says, “Pal is a lot more articulate than me. This was essentially to stop Pal recycling some work of his in another form, and passing it off as new work. I feared Chaos Theory: The Video Game, was only months away. I had to do something, so I’m currently trying to distract Anuvab with the novel notion of writing some more new stuff. And what he didn’t tell you is that he needs to pay rent for his new office. So he had to do it.”
PS. If you haven’t watch Between to Ferns, dude you are missing out.
