From Bakra-man prankster and radio jockey to political satirist and a pick-up line maestro, comedian Cyrus Broacha wears many hats. And now, he is all set to host a podcast show Cyrus Says. If you loved him on his television or radio shows, this is something you should definitely tune into.
For starters, the comedian will mince no words and promises to give us an unadulterated taste of realness. "The one thing about a podcast is that you can almost be as close to your real self. We are kinda restrained on other media because we can’t really say something that crosses lines not just with politics. I just feel that as a generation gets older, they need more ‘real’. Podcast is what our next generation will be turning to; all our other instruments will grow passé. I just feel it gives me a chance to speak openly without having something in my head all the time," Cyrus explains.
Airing on Indus Vox Media, the country's largest podcast network, the show will be all about interviews with non-celebs who are acing at life. Like Cyrus says, "We’ve over-celebrated actor and cricketers. I think we should have a five-year ban: No actors or cricketers on any media form."
No, it isn't like an urban take on Aamir Khan's Satyamev Jayate either because the show is solely about fascinating real-life stories from people who you are likely to be crushed against in an overcrowded metro. "Satyamev Jayate was more like a social justice crusade. I wanna talk about people, because in this digital age you don't really get to know someone and find out how fascinating their stories are," he says.
So, if you miss catching the podcast show, you can even keep abreast on Cyrus and his bona fide celebs on YouTube. Not only this, if you're stuck in a career rut, give this Cyrus Says a spin to get some great wage-slavery ideas. "As the 21st century moves forward, I think people would want to know more about other people. It’s not going to be restricted to 20 famous faces, everybody will be famous now," he says.
