Untold stories from the hottest stars
FROM news in shorts, music videos, shopping, dating and food ordering to talk shows, everything is app-based and on the go. Ita��s the new age truism and everyone is taking to it. A reason enough for Bollywood actor Neha Dhupia to attempt #NoFilterNeha, an audio chat show that is on air on Saavn, the music app.
a�?Freewheeling conversations with my friends from the industry a�� thata��s what this show is about. Things and fun facts that arena��t featured on Google make it to the show. Unedited and mad conversations. Ita��s totally millennial stuff,a�? explains Dhupia who opened Season 1 with Karan Johar. Every new episode goes live on Tuesdays and is 45 minutes long.
While the format is the same as any other talk show, Dhupia is convinced ita��s different because, a�?The biggest advantage is, it is an audio chat show and ita��s easy for my guests to let down their inhibitions, be completely candid, and not be worried of being captured on camera.a�? From KJo, to Sonam Kapoor, Anurag Kashyap, Ranbir Kapoor, Vishal Dadlani, Kareena Kapoor and Chetan Bhagat, the show has an interesting line-up.
With such a motley group of guests on an audio show, radio would have been a better option, but Dhupia has her reservations. a�?Censorship and restrictions on radio would have marred the USP of the show,a�? she says. So while digital and app-based media are still joining the dots of content and censorship rules, shows like these are feeding listeners with interesting gossip.
