Adani gets NDTV, China protests, Israeli filmmaker blasts Kashmir files | News Bharat

Abhinandan Sekhri, Raman Kirpal and Mehraj D Lone of News washing joined this week by Krishn Kaushik of the Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project and independent journalist Somya Ashok.

They talk about the ongoing protests in China against the strict Covid restrictions and how the communist regime is responding to them. Sowmiya, reporting from China, explains why the very act of people showing up to protest in that country is “brave and a big issue.”

Gautam Adani’s Takeover of NDTV is another subject of discussion. Krishn explains why the billionaire’s purchase of the TV network is not “just another business deal, but a pure power move.” Abhinandan says he is surprised at “how this takeover of NDTV is making so much noise”, adding, “I didn’t expect this”.

They also discuss Nadav Lapid’s scathing criticism of the Bollywood film The Kashmir Files, its inclusion in the Goa International Film Festival of India and why the Israeli director’s remarks outraged Indian prime-time TV anchors. Another hot topic this week is the controversy surrounding former German footballer and coach Jurgen Klinsmann’s alleged racist comments about the tactics of the Iranian team at the FIFA World Cup in Qatar.
