In our MAMI special edition of The Firstpost Show — here's presenting jury members/directors - Zoya Akhtar and Shakun Bhatra along with actress Richa Chadda.

Starting off with the most debated topic in recent times, the jury have their take on artistes and films from Paksitani getting banned. Zoya Akhtar discusses at length about industry members not being in the business of public service and how the real responsibility is with the elected public figures to take a stand.

While Shakun Batra talks about the problems in voicing opinions, Richa quotes "The most tragic thing is - silence is also a comment."

Soon, the jury does a throwback for us and remember their days of watching all sorts of movies - from Omen to Haathi Mere Saathi and Roop Ki Rani Chooron Ka Raja.

The director-actor trio also give out some of the most cliched and rather hilarious questions they faced at interviews and promotions.

They signed off on a fun note by playing the jinx challenge.
