Podcast on Khol at DFWSAFF
What the...DFW South Asian Film Festival
We had a blast on our first Special Edition episode- 4 Days, 4 Years of DFW SAFF!
My producer and I decided to do this one off-location and head to the final after party to talk to festival attendees, actors and activists! We began the interview talking about the films of the weekend and the indomitable founder and director, Jitin Hingorani.
We then jump into interviews with some of our favorite festival attendees and their takeaways from the weekend, actor and producer (and fellow Texan) Shawn Parikh (Outsourced, The Mindy Project), and the lovely Priyanka Bose (Lion, Nirbhaya The Play).
Shawn shares his journey as a Texas boy from Plano to an L.A. producer, writer and actor. We get a sneak peak of his new project and the lowdown on Mindy Kaling. Yes, she's as cool as you think she is.
Priyanka talks openly about how real life events led her to the phenomenal role she played in Nirbhaya The Play, her struggle growing up in Delhi wanting to be an actress and how she finally found her place amongst the madness of Bollywood.
Don't mind the club music in the background and the clinking of glasses, we were all in celebration mode!
