Broadcasting twice a week with a rotating panel of guests, Cyrus Says is the definitive show on life in urban India, politics, sports, civic sense, traffic, kids, food, and everything that matters. Mostly.


Ep. 549: feat. Anand Neelakantan

This week, Cyrus is joined by author Anand Neelakantan, the author of such bestsellers like Asura: Tale of The Vanquished, the popular Ajaya book series, and the Baahubali prequel trilogy. They talk about the 2nd book in the series - Chaturanga, how he got approached by S. S. Rajamouli to write the books, and how he perceived the story. They also get into a quirky and hilarious chat about Anand being a history and mythology buff, writing for television for shows like 'Siya Ke Ram', how his first book depicted the Ramayana from Ravana's point of view, about him writing columns in newspapers in multiple languages, being a cartoonist, and lots more. Tune in for tons of laughs.
