I have always loved the The Viral Fever guys. I have never been able to decide if I like their Chai, Sutta Chronicles series better or The Making Of series. Like I didn’t have enough choices to make already, they’ve come up with their brilliant new series called Barely Speaking With Arnub. Arnub spoofs Arnab Goswami; a job super well done by Bisapati Sarkar.
The internet is gaining huge leverage as a platform for promotion of Bollywood films. Shah Rukh Khan was the first one to be on the show and left us in splits. Next up, Kill Dil stars Ranveer Singh, Parineeti Chopra and Ali Zafar graced the show and man, it was hilarious! Sarkar, unsurprisingly, took everyone’s case with much elan. He called Ranveer Rannvijay Singh “of Roadies fame”, Parineeti, “Priyanka Chopra beta version” and Ali, “Atif Aslam“.
In all of this, Ali Zafar was such a revelation! He definitely was the only one who gave it back to Arnub and totally won my heart. While Ranveer was grilled for his Sindhi genes (his last name is Bhavnani!) and Parineeti was thrown a hell lot of fat jokes her way, my favourite moment was one with Zafar:
“So you did a remake of a film called Chasmein Baddoor?”
“How does it feel to ruin a classic?”
“How does it feel to ruin a classic like Between The Ferns?”
