Episode 52,   Jan 22, 2019, 05:44 PM

Alisa Rivera returns to the show on this episode to recap the latest Bollywood news for January 2019, as we look at the latest #MeToo moment in Bollywood as well as the problem with ‘stanning’ favourites in the industry. We also gush about the Gully Boy & Ek Ladki Ko Dekha To Aisa Laga trailers. 


  • Our last episode looked back at the #MeToo moments of Bollywood in 2018.

  • Rajkumar Hirani, director of P.K., 3 Idiots and Sanju is the latest to be accused of sexual misconduct.

  • Alisa & I react to the silence of Bollywood in this instance. 

  • Is it really hard to separate the art from the artist?

  • I say ‘Woody Harellson’ when I mean ‘Woody Allen’. 

  • The real problem with ‘faving’ or ‘stanning’ stars we admire. 

  • Is Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Hai To Asia Laga the Black Panther or Wonder Woman of Bollywood when it comes to representation?

  • We discuss the nuances of Ranveer Singh’s haircut in the Gully Boy trailer.
