As everybody knows, the principal measure of gender equality is arm wrestling. Our guest on the show today is well-known actor and TV boss, Darius "Tuffy" Taraporvala. Tuffy handles his roles easily, whether he's playing a petulant Mozart, a clueless spy Bernard Boursicot, caught in his honey trap with Shi Pei Pu, a Peking opera singer or one of the Marx Brothers. Ramjee Chandran peels the layers off Tuffy in a fun, freewheeling interview.
THE WORD - "DUFFER"
Co-host Pranati "Pea" Madhav joins Ramjee Chandran in the segment, titled "What Was That Word?" or titled whatever the host wants it to be titled. They dive into the usage and etymology of "duffer". Heaven knows there are so many of those who plague us every day.
