Over the course of 40 highly entertaining minutes, the duo chatted about everything from his career to food and, yes, Anushka Sharma. In between all that, he took every opportunity he could to roast his colleagues:

1. The episode started with a discussion about Virat's love for Punjabi pop, which somehow veered into him defining the term "patola" for non-Punjabi viewers.
