Cyrus is joined in the studio by Kunal Vijaykar, Amit Doshi and Abbas, We discuss the very convoluted abrogation of article 370 in Kashmir, Zomato getting embroiled in religious politics, Ravish Kumar winning the Magsaysay award and Kunal Kamra's show in Surat getting cancelled due to threats from goons. Later on for the AMA's Rajiv Laxman of 'Mtv Roadies' fame joins us and hilarity ensues.

CyrusSaysEp377.png

It's election result day and it's also Cock & Bull day! Joining Cyrus this week is comedian Kajol Srinivasan along with Amit and Abbas. NOTE: This episode was recorded before the election results were out so allow us to sound like fools or geniuses in some places where we make (not so) bold predictions.
The 4 of them talk about exit polls, their legitimacy and ridiculousness, the art of addressing yourself in third person, Vivek Oberoi's controversial meme, the TMC-BJP clashes in Kolkata, what is the 'Khan Market Gang'? And of course we give our take on who will come out on top in the elections.
