Swara Bhasker and Ravi Patel speak on their new Netflix show Bhaag Beanie Bhaag, about a female comic breaking out.
All stories need a template. Directing Gully Boy, for instance, Zoya Akhtar drew heavily from iconic rap movies like 8 Mile and Hustle & Flow.
The new Netflix show follows the journey of Beanie Bhatnagar, a 20-something woman, who is breaking stereotypes and running after her ambition of being a stand-up comic.
Indian-American actor and comedian Ravi Patel essays a fictionalised version of himself as a budding comic and Beanie's new-found friend.
