RKC: Us se kya hoga,
(What will that do), he had nothing to do with that.
apparently, jo naam
circulate hue hain na
9 o' clock news ke liye
A. Raja, Azhagiri - (No, apparently, the names which have been circulated in the media for the 9 o' clock news, they are A. Raja, Azhagiri -)
RKC: Hmm -
NR: To phir
Azhagiri drop hua
because unhone kaha ki
Azhagiri nahin hai, to
Raja ka naam sab jagah hai.
(So then Azhagiri was dropped because they said that Azhagiri is not there, so Raja's name is everywhere.)
NR: This one also came off the air, Rajdeep (Sardesai) he also told me the same thing; NewsX told me the same thing, everyone is taking his name. In the evening I met Shivnath (Thukral), also from NDTV, sabne yehi bola ki
(everyone said the same thing that) it's Raja's...I asked them, I said, "Whose name it is?", then I spoke to Times of India, because (I was) talking on my Gas story, so they said that the name that is being discussed is Raja...has been told to the Law Minister...is Raja.
RKC: Hmm...I don't know, I didn't speak to anybody.
NR: Just letting you know...that his...there are very many people who just spread his name and it's not true you know, that's why I just called you as soon as I just got in, I said let me call you straight away.
RKC: Okay, okay.
NR: I'm trying to call him, I tried calling him at home, minister, but uh, he's uh, the guard has answered the phone and said he's sleeping.
