Panel discussions..heated debates…leaders being bashed at..these are very few things viewers witness in an Arnab Goswami’s show. Known for his mark heated comments in his show, the senior journalist turning mum over a point is such a rare thing to watch. But to everyone’s surprise, social media on Tuesday witnessed an interesting scenario where a budding stand-up comedian left a senior journalist like Arnab silent. Into details, Kunal Kamra, a stand-up comedian who frequently criticises the government and denounces its communal policies, happened to share the flight journey with Arnab.

It all started with Kunal while he tried to get Arnab to respond in a way reminiscent of a Republic TV debate. Not only did the famous moderator allegedly called Kunal a mentally unstable person but refused to respond to the questions darted by the latter. Known to be one of the staunch right-wing BJP supporters, Arnab in the video was seen turning a deaf ear to Kunal’s questions over Rohit Vemula’s issue. Calling Arnab a coward, Kunal was seen constantly persuading Arnab to reply. However, the Chief of Republic TV chose to remain silent with his earphones plugged in which not only irked Kunal but the netizens who came across the video. In no time, the video started trending, triggering a debate in the comment section. While a section people appreciated Arnab’s patience apparently to respect the other passengers, majority of the twittery took potshots at him for not paying attention even after repeated appeals.
