NDTV brings you some post-work infotainment
COLLABORATING with some of the most well-known production houses in the country, NDTV Prime (called NDTV Profit between 9 am and 5 pm) will now offer you entertainment post 5 pm.
On Mondays, Qyuki Digital Media’s, The Boss Dialogues, sees host Indu Mirani chat with the likes of Karan Johar and Farhan Akhtar in what she says is ‘a series of frank, candid and intimate conversations with the bosses of Bollywood’. “It is intelligent conversation. It’s not about rumours and gossip, so they can let their guard down,” she says. We hope to get more insight on the ‘bosses’ owing to Mirani’s personal connect with them. “Knowing the guests personally and professionally creates interesting reference points and it’s easier to elicit anecdotes,” she says.
Former RJ Mihir Joshi takes over on Tuesdays for The MJ Show, which digs deep into the lives and influences of musicians such as Kailash Kher and Amit Trivedi. “The show was created to bridge that gap, to create a platform where singers, music makers and now even entertainers and actors get to come and talk about themselves, their journeys, about the music they love and about their work in a chilled out comfortable space,” Joshi explains, adding that it is the artistes and their journey told in ‘a relaxed, comfortable atmosphere’.
Wednesdays will have documentaries and Thursdays will be Talkies with Pocket Films, a series of documentaries and short films that are otherwise ignored by mainstream media. Make sure you tune in before the weekend for your dose of Friday Double Bill as filmmaker Mayank Shekhar and filmmaker Fahad Samar give you their expert opinion of the films of the week. At the moment, the duo recommends The Grand Budapest Hotel and Blue Jasmine with Humshakals, Lucy and Satya 2 (also known as Satya naash), as certain no-gos!
On NDTV Prime, weekdays at 9 pm
