‘On Air With AIB’: Talking About Nationalism, Nihalani & Gurmehar

And it is back! On Air With AIB returns with more witticisms and quips about trending events and breaking news. And rightly so, since it is the court-jester’s job to point out the folly of the king.

In the current episode on Hotstar, our favourite hosts and “youth icons”, Gursimran Khamba and Ashish Shakya talk about everything from Pahlaj Nihalani’s not certifying the “lady oriented” Lipstick Under My Burkha, to the rape threats that Gurmehar Kaur had to endure.

Haan, hum anti-national hain!” say Rohan Joshi and Ashish Shakhya. (Photo: Screenshot/ Hotstar)

Khamba and Shakya point out the holes in Pahlaj Nihalani’s logic behind not certifying the “lady oriented” Lipstick Under My Burkha, and talk about the rape threats that Gurmehar Kaur had to endure before fleeing the capital. And of course, they take a dig at the rampant fanatic nationalism that has taken over the country as well.

Rohan Joshi joins them mid-way and they declare themselves anti-nationals to save their troll the trouble. Watch till the end to see Tanmay Bhat sum up a cinema advert in a very nationalistic fashion.

Welcome back boys, welcome back.
