Chhota Hafta 357: Munawar Faruqui quits comedy, Mamata Banerjee’s politics, Sidhu Moose Wala joins Congress

This week on NL Hafta, Abhinandan Sekhri, Manisha Pande, Raman Kirpal and Meghnad S are joined by multimedia artist Anurag Verma.

While discussing Munawar Faruqui’s decision to quit his stand-up comedy career, Anurag says, “The real question is of the majority’s expectations, it wasn’t about Munawar’s identity. But the real anger was because of the expectations they have from the identity.” The panel also talks about the cancellation of comedian Kunal Kamra’s shows and the backlash that Vir Das received after his ‘Two Indias’ monologue at Washington DC.
