      Ashwin: Who is the hero of 'Michael madana kamarajan' Barry: "Crazy Mohan" Clean Bold!

    3. nevin francis

      This interview shows the intelligence of R. Ashwin and he has made some good observations... some I must say better than a conventional movie critic.

    4. Venkat Babu

      Ashwin is one of the intelligent person in Tamil Nadu, after kamal Hassan etc , hope Ashwin advices his family and friends to vote for MNM

      I don't know who is the interviewer

    7. Sarath Kumar

      Rising film Critic on the way

    8. Ramya Manoj

      Couldn't agree with Ashwin whn he says, the more the celebrities mingle with public, the more accustomed public will get and stop bothering the stars. It's not going to be the same set of people all the time. Each visit to a public place is going to bring in contact with fresh set of people. And we the public are crazy hero-worshippers. What with each one having a smartphone, there's going to be eternal selfie requests. People are not going to be satisfied with a pic taken frm a distance, but are hungry for selfies-with-celebrities. Like stamp collecting used to be a hobby, I see selfie-collecting nowadays.

    9. mahendran D

      A wonderful and informative candid interview. All the best to both of you. Im sure ashwin is going to have a great second inning after his cricketing career.

      Super 💖

    11. D16

      his views about being a ‘celebrity’ are extremely interesting

    12. J Pushpak Martin

      Ash !!! vera level !

    13. Arul A

      AR Rahman brought nothing new, he brought "back" English songs. While his songs hit in India, I've listened to the original English song in UK.

    14. manoj sundar

      Dc spinner or Indian spinner?? what is this non sense!!

    15. Ranga Kanapathy

      He thinks he is BIG now starts preaching, ask him what has done anything for the society so far? Ooorukku ubadesam... too much Padam ... I have seen him the way he acts in public...

    16. Ranga Kanapathy

      Ashwin didn’t come across as matured, most part he wanted to say something diff to prove he is smart than BR or the viewers ...

    17. Ranga Kanapathy

      I think Ashwin is trying to prove he is smart and some answers are completely random on MMKM he asks BR why do I like the movie? Ans: coz of Delhi Ganesh 😂... he doesn’t want I look like a normal guy so he is throwing all answers around it...

      1. 〫〫

        vaithu erichallu?

    18. Sreekar Vemmula

      BR ... the best intervew so far... but the credit goes to Ash ... he made it brilliant with his enthusiasm and positivity 👏👏👏😇😇😇

    19. shahbad ashraf

      When R Ashwin Talks.. You just listen.. Excellent insights...❤️

    20. sathya 991

      Very interesting interview.. What ashwin said is 100 percent true..

    21. Suhasini Varadhan

      Dang now thats an interview !!!!!

    22. Moto Gp

      Ashwin actually revealed the formula of kamal's movies:)... because the strongest characters in a kamal movie were most of the time, Nasser, Nagesh ,Santha Bharathi, Delhi Ganesh.. especially Delhi Ganesh,I guess he's in indian 2 too....

    23. sln78

      Ash, can you interview director shankar?

    24. Sai kumar

      Mr.Ashwin am so sorry, Enthiran 2.0 is not message oriented film. Parasakthi,Rathakanner,Kakka muttai etc are message oriented film. Shankar's movies are nothing but crap in my opinion.

    25. Santhosh Kumar

      I'm a big of Ashwin a youtuber than cricketer

      Excellent interview I never felt an interview touching my heart like this. Ashwin, you touched the real base.

    33. Nivas Ramachandiran

    34. Akshhaya Ramalingam

      Not a cricket fan.. But, this interview was superb.. And Ashwin was great

    35. karthik rajagopal

      Ashwin, really loved the Interview. eye opener with this point you said, "To change happen, every one has to take a film on corruption" This applies to our life also

    36. L Ragul

      Elitist view

      1. 〫〫

    43. Manikandan Parthasarathy

    44. Sridhar Nagarajan

      Loving this guy !!!

    45. Aravindsamy R

      I feel bad for baddy. He just wants ashwin to name some songs. U are cruel Ashwin🤣🤣🤣


      Ashwin pulled off a Arnab here but with sense🤣🤣🤣

    47. powsh krishna

      Initially i also thought interview was going to be as always. @R Ashwin drove it in a thought provoking way for some. @R Ashwin must have several youtube channels on various topics. If i get a chance to have a coffee i would enjoy it with Ashwin. He is a deep person.

    48. powsh krishna

      I didnt like when Bharadwaj quoted normal people. Everyone is normal people but nobody wants to become one, especially celebrities. I know Bharadwaj didnt mean it. @R Ashwin were right on. See Vijay Ajith Rajini and Kamal should ve done that long ago. Not now.

    49. powsh krishna

      Not just in press conference, @R Ashwin. If a person be analytical in any situation and answer the question with confidence, that person become odd one out in terms of not among us.

    50. Santhu sant

      Ashwin made him shut his mouth. Perfect answers for his questions I wonder Ranganath evn has no choice.

    51. Santhu sant

      Ashwin made him shout his mouth. Perfect answers for his questions I wonder Ranganath evn has no choice.

      Ashwin you are such a stardom Anchor man...what a deliberate speech about any stream...You rocks!! Thanks BR.

    53. Manoj Gopanapalli


    54. Sree Krishna

      26:00 Very well said about how westerners can have a life as celebrity and still be among common men with the examples of Steven Smith and Warner but the culture in india is vastly different it's because i also think that it is with the people's mindset if they see Sachin Tendulkar or Rajinikanth or any celebrity for that matter they see them as some demigod or a person with extraordinary capabilities with considering the fact that he is just a common man like you and me with good talents which should be appreciated but not to be worshipped and that should change within our culture otherwise there is no hope.

    55. Chakravarthy nallan Balaji

      Too much interest in films than cricket ?if similar interest shown how to bowl in australia and england ?u would have taken 500wickets by now ?

      1. 〫〫

        His life, let him do what he wants. I googled your name, dont see your name on top of any field yet. why is that?

    56. Chakravarthy nallan Balaji

      Ru switching ur Career to films?from cricket?

    57. mr. kev

      one big elaborate promotion for KTV!!


      Awesome Interview 😍 Respect for Ashwin has gone up! Different lessons learnt and gained ! Thanks for the interview

    59. San Sore

      Ashwin is a Polymath. He's good in everything he chooses to do.

    60. pavan ramtej

      I think Bharadwaj is clearly blown away by the knowledge of Ashwin...

    61. Manikandan Baskaran

      Seems like Ktv is helped ashwin most

    62. smriti kannan

      Ashwin! What an intelligent man. Big fan now.

    63. Badrinath Narayanan

      Ashwin s 4th in india s all time test wicket takers. It's kinda disservice to have the title as dc spinner.

      1. Shyam

        It is ipl season dude.

    64. Manoj Kumar

      Just started to watch for few mins but the way Ashwin spoke he just blown me away... clarity of speech..I loved the way he spoke about celebrity..time to break all these can kind of hype n get into reality world..worth watching

    65. shiva ram

      Ashwin is flexing his tamil cinema knowledge in front of baddy. That's the confidence I need to have in my life.

    66. Akshaya Annadurai

      Was Ashwin Standing throughout the conversation????

    67. Arun Roy

      When he appreciates Vishnu Vishal.. safely he avoided Jeeva😀😀

      1. Hari Krishna

        @Vignesh Kalaiselvan wat how is Ashwin responsible for politics in tamilnadu cricket??

      2. Dhilip kumar

        Vishnu vishal is the perfect choice to do kris srikanth role in 83 movie. then i just remembered the movie jeeva

      3. Barathi Krishnamurthi

        @Vignesh Kalaiselvan bro both r good frnds with each other I don't think any other cricketer in tn will be frnds with vishnu only ashwin is frnd with him Atleast let us be happy that they r frnds but still politics issue is very sad and embarrassing

      4. Vignesh Kalaiselvan

        @Barathi Krishnamurthi nyaayama sorry kekanum.. It is the good nature of Vishnu that he is still friends with those people :p

      5. Barathi Krishnamurthi

        Atleast he is still friends with him that itself show his good nature Many ppl won't even do that

    68. Akshaya Annadurai

      K Tv had a pretty role in my Schooldays as well....

    69. Sreenidhi Ramachandran


    70. Joseva Joshi

      Amazed by your wider knowledge ash... Fully astonished sir... Every "so called celebraties " should see this interview....

    71. Manu Ram

      I want to endorse what Ashwin said regarding sports persons in the western world, many years back in 1996 I was shopping in a baby shop for a pram for my daughter in Sydney . Steve Waugh and his wife were there in the shop too, except for a few whispers and a few gaze towards Steve Waugh the rest of the customers didn't bother approaching him, I was the only one who was gaping at him as I was only about a couple of years in Australia at that time.

    72. Manu Ram

      Films and Cricket is India's craze not Films and Sports. Scientists are not popular in any country boss they are just respected, I live overseas and I have experienced it, sure singers are very popular in the western world. Anybody who entertains you will be popular in every country.

    73. Dhinesh P

      Such a wonderful interview. Ashwin you are a rockstar 🙌🏻

    74. Saptak Das

      @18:36 till 20:56 very well said .

    75. rishin krishnan

      I got a headache. I'm sure baddy did too 😁

    76. Sargunan

      He is simply Brilliant ! so much of knowledge.

    77. rahul tiwari

      What d fuck is this series of cricketers talking abt films..if not anything this gives insinuation that Fc is being bankrolled by red chillies and dharma..😎

    78. Blue Eagle Films

      Mr.Ashwin..My freind didnt bribe the policeman for passport and after 10 days,his passport got rejected..atlast his father had to pay understanding that his son will never do and then he settled outside the country today..do u really think if he was admant and not payment,it would have made a differnce. Atmost people will laugh at u and ignore because for everyone time is the essence..After watching movie for 1 hour even I feel like hitting 15 goons but then reality strikes...More than movies its the education system which should change if you really want to change..Movies are for entertainment and stars are there for earning money..B and C centre people want something which this movie people always give and if u make art movie for them..nobody will come to theatres..so end of the day the root is education lets change the education system...

    79. Mohamed Yasir

      Proper! Very Healthy conversation on movies. Next round table ku ivara kupdalam as a audience perspective input.

    80. Zero Man

      Read the title of the video carefully Then comment It's about the IPL players

    81. Sanat Attavar

      Ashwin is brilliant - Ash understanding The Purpose of Life / implementing it 24/7/365 x span of lifetime is be all / end all else this life is a vicious cycle and why I stress or rather why bother is because that’s the need of the hour for humanity. Ash everyone is good but IMPORTANT to find out or see is who is right and either keep away from the. Wrong or work on getting the wrong to see the right - don’t play to gallery with them or even if those who are right. Example : Jaggi Vasudev his single claim of his wife attaining SAMADHI - really Ashwin - show me one instance other than Paramahansa Yogananda writing about it in his book, anyone who has voluntarily left their book through a yogic process, while it’s common banter in yoga but Bheesma is the ONLY other person who achieved it which has been documented. Most who otherwise achieve Samadhi is connecting to GOD while life is about to leave them NOT they leaving life. Ash RIGHTEOUSNESS supersedes positivity- The answermy friend to all this is simple not easy - Spiritual Awareness- finding out is there method to this madness - it’s all there in Scriptures - implementation is what is missing - the moment YOU implement it you will see LIFE IS IN PERFECT ORDER! If one sees it otherwise then the implementation is not to the required level - one thing will remain though - people’s struggles with LIFE will pain you but then one can’t do much but keep goading them - the best part though is, irrespective of the situation, condition or position you find yourself in you won’t be struggling. Hare Krishna!

      The biggest enemies of Vijay and ajith are their fans 👍

      1. vignesh g

        True 😂😂😂

    83. Jonas

      Overall summary Aswin interviewed bharathwaraj

    84. Victoria Ganesan

      Ashwin I going to subcribe to you

    85. Fedrick Nicolas

      Ashwin does not speak about JEEVA of Vishnuvishal .. Guilt ?... Hahahahh😂😂😂

    86. Shivaram K V

      Bharadwaj Rangan in entire video : Yappa ivan enekke class edukaran pa !!! Aala vidura saami.... Always been a big fan of Ashwin......

    87. Shriraam Balasubramanian

      Kamal Haasan deserves more and more for what he does contributed to Tamil and Indian cinema! Lately he can be bashed by morons who has not even achieved in anything in their life!

      1. Shriraam Balasubramanian

        @Ashish R Someone who has not even watched all his movies and type of movies he made or acted will comment ill about him unnecessarily.

      2. Ashish R

        What particular thing you're referring here?

    88. Deejay Phani

      Ashwin made the most important point. Whom do you like Kamal or Rajini / Sachin or Kohli ? Cliche questions & comparing of 2 things ! Thanks for nailing it !

    89. Vinod. Charan Dass

      Thoroughly enjoyed... Able to connect to even the micro details from a macro perspective.. Fantastic interview after a very long time.. All the best Ash!

    90. hari naren

      Came here for an entertainment show. But actually is a karuthhu show. Ashwin | Dravid | Maddy - True inspiration

    91. ravans73

      Ashwin is clear in his thought process...great hearing you boss...

    92. VJ M

      I like Ashwin but I beg to differ on some of the comments about how clear his thoughts are. I felt like some of the answers are very vague. He talks about Indian movie giving hope. I still don’t get what hope has to do with that movie. A common man taking law in his hand is the hope? I love the movie but still don’t understand the “hope” part. Talking about playing without audience he says first he does not care. Then when Rangan asks about the crowd appreciation, he says yes they are like blood vessels.. so Ashwin likes or does not like playing with the crowd? Loved the interview but still I felt some of the answers were pretty wayward..

    93. Raj kiran

      I felt in the first half of the video , he was speaking like actor madhavan 😋

    94. Kamal D

      Mr.Rangan I would love to see you having a conversation with a common moving going audience or a great movie enthusiast. This will give a great opportunity to understand the audience perspective of cinema and will lead to an interesting conversation is what I believe. Will you be doing it sir?. Hope to see such a conversation soon. Good luck

    95. Kamal D

      My gosh. I am overwhelmed with the flow of thought and great choice of words from Mr. Ashwin. Another great interview. Keep rocking Mr.Rangan!!!

    96. Sreeram Ramji

      antha statistic laam theriyathu sir

    97. Prem Ananth Govindan

      Wow! What a interaction. First time getting a chance to watch and hear Ashwin outside the cricket ground. Knowledgable and very passionate with the movie happenings

      1. Prem Ananth Govindan

        @Akshaya 27 eDiTz Sure will do.... thanks for the suggestion

    98. Sharodh K R

      BR put a nail in Ashwin's coffin when he said crazy Mohan is the hero of the Micheal Madhana Kama Rajan... 😂 BR for a reason.😎

    99. Senthil Kumaran

      Very Insightful view. Thanks Baradwaraj for bringing Ashwin to your interview. This was a great session and hopefully we move away from individual worship at the least in your interviews

    100. Shreyas S

      Surprised with the discussion in this interview! Should be continued & taken forward...
