Following this premiere, Film Companion with Anupama Chopra will stream twice weekly every Thursday and Friday on Saavn”, company sated in the press note.
Commenting on the association with Saavn, Anupama Chopra, said, “I’m very excited to be on Saavn. I’ve never done a long form audio show before and this is both an exciting and challenging opportunity. I hope to learn and grow with Saavn.”
The other show will be a talk show, NoFilter Neha, which will be hosted by Neha Dhupia, who will be in conversation with celebrities from Bollywood, fashion, sports, and music in her notoriously wicked style.
Commenting on the association with Saavn, Neha Dupia, said, “A big inspiration for me are Tina Fey, Ellen DeGeneres, Madonna and other dynamic strong women who are constantly pushing themselves and doing so many things,”
“For me having an audio chat show is another exciting challenge which I hope gives me another opportunity to show my quirky side. Saavn to me is a place where the talented meet the cool and vice-versa and I am happy to get on board with them as a content creator,” Neha further added.
Apart from these new shows, Raghu Dixit, internationally acclaimed Indian Indie musician & music director, joins Saavn’s Artist-in-Residence (AiR) program.

I know that with their diverse and highly engaged listeners, this partnership will be a great step forward in taking quality Indian independent music around the world.”
