    DK is such a breath of fresh air with breaking stereotypes and saying he is closest in personality to Bommarilu's Genelia. Kudos to staying true to your nature DK and declaring it without lying and naming some macho character just to stick to convention.

    8:09 I think DK mistook Jeff Daniels (The Newsroom) for Bill Pullman (Independence Day). I think the TV series he mentioned at 8:45 was The Newsroom. And the iconic monologue was given by Jeff Daniels from the first episode of first season. Ironically, same as DK, I watched the entire series because of that one monologue. "America is not the greatest country in the world anymore speech". Such a great TV series I've ever watched. I suggest you people to check it out.
