India’s leading online news portal ‘The Quint’ in association with Kohler Co. has launched its new and exciting web series – The Bold Bunch. The talk show brings to light the achievements of handpicked new age Bollywood celebrities, who have broken barriers and created a reverential mark in the industry.
Hosted by renowned Bollywood film critic and entertainment industry veteran Rajeev Masand, The ‘Bold Bunch’ series presents and celebrates stories of Bollywood personalities from different walks of life, who have gone beyond the conventional to make bold and experimental choices in their line of work.
The show allows a candid tete-a-tete with celebrities who have walked the unbeaten path including names as Radhika Apte, an actress known for her unconventional and versatile choice of films; Zoya Akhtar, the filmmaker with a Midas touch; Rajkummar Rao, award winning actor; Vicky Kaushal, the promising actor who has already become the flavour of the season; and Rhea Kapoor, the filmmaker who has reiterated the ‘bold is beautiful’ ideology with her blockbuster movies.
Commenting on the launch, Ritu Kapur, CEO and Co-Founder, The Quint, said, “The idiom of storytelling in cinema and on the net has shifted to experimenting with far more nuanced narratives and characters. And the new bold bunch of actors and directors has infused this change with tremendous talent and confidence. Who better to analyse this than Rajeev, who has tracked cinema through its ebb and flow.”
The series was launched with Radhika Apte on March 25, 2019 followed by a brand new episode every Monday evening.
