Abbas: Did you see? Karan Johar has put up a high production quality pre-wedding video of Anant Ambani and Radhika Merchant. Our pre-wedding videos are by some random ‘Chandu video wala’. Nainika: No, Abbas. You’re Bombay royalty. You should have one of your director friends come in and shoot your wedding with a film camera. Abbas: I think I’d get Suraj Barjatya, or maybe Quentin Tarantino. The joota-churai ceremony would be epic.Nainika: Oh my god, you did not just say that.
