The Screen Patti’s Rabish Ki Report is a political satire disguised as a parody. Shivankit has smartly portrayed the role of the journalist Ravish Kumar through a similar hair-do, his quirky laughter, and with the usage of appropriate Hindi. The show is co-written by Shivankit and Deepesh Sumitra Jagdish.
