Ask Aakar Anything
Ask Aakar Anything is a weekly show where Aakar Patel shares his views on topics that you raise (and sometimes on those you should have raised). Each week Aakar answers questions sent to him from across the country on subjects as diverse as politics, current affairs, sports, entertainment and social issues answering them with a unique perspective on things, the way only he can.
Irreverent, serious, insightful, analytical, funny, angry, passionate but never dull: that’s Aakar’s answer to your question about what his show is about.
Porn ban: acting without thinking? Colonial Club snobbery. Celeb-backed causes.
Is struggling important? Stereotypes in Bollywood. Mumbai, city of dreams no more?

Banias and business. Maggi in a soup. Monsoons.
Language vs. English newspapers. Arts in India. If Aakar had three wishes.
BCCI and FIFA. Movie about elections 2014. AAP’s chances in Mumbai.
Are relationships going virtual? More funds for public transport? The role of religion in modern life. Are Indian ads dumb?
