The event opens with a stand-up comedy show by Rajiv Rajaram & Utsav Chakraborty, two voice-over professionals who aim to take through the everyday absurdities that voice-over artist endure and the impact it has on their lives. In a time of the fake news, family WhatsApp groups and absolute polarization; these two men aim to stand up and “try to make you understand the greatest weapon that is used by our fellow Indians.”
