Welcome to the first AKK for 2018! As promised, for this edition of Aaj Ka Kabootar we are going to keep everything #posivibesonly!
But before we jump to our top stories, Pappu & Sweety give an update on the #MeToo movement. We talk about Aziz Ansari & about the spectrum that is the prevalent rape culture.
Our top stories: first up, its award season, we talk about The Grammys, Filmfare, the Golden Globe, + the Fashun at the Black Panther premier.
Sweety shares her #MCM Crown Prince Manvendra Singh Gohil, the first openly gay royal of the state of Rajpipla in Gujarat. He is pushing back against traditions, stereotypes and taboos to convert his palace into an LGBTQA sanctuary.
We also talk about a new “breakthrough therapy” to treat victims of PTSD.
And finally, stay tuned for a review of #Padmavat (SPOILERS!) with a surprise guest – Hriday Ranjan, the sarcastic voice behind heartranjan.com. Sweety asks him of what he thought of the much-politicized Sanjay Leela Bansali magnum opus.
“I feel so bad for Aziz Ansar’s dad! You see your own Desi father in him, and think oh my god if my parents had to read this I would be devastated!” – Sweety
“The fashion theme for the Black Panther movie premiere was Royalty, and every actor on the red carpet brought their best sartorial foot forward!” – Pappu
“We need to have a much needed discussion about consent.” – Sweety
