Congratulations to Zohran Mamdani and his Nani

Former 3QD writer, Vivek Menezes: “Huge congratulations to Zohran Mamdani, who appears to have won the Democratic primary for District 36 in the New York State Assembly (that’s Astoria + Long Island City in Queens). Son of (great) film-director Mira Nair and (great) Ugandan-Indian intellectual force Mahmood Mamdani, the 29-year-old is an exciting progressive with limitless promise. Also very cool: in his previous avatar as rapper Mr. Cardamom, he made this all-time-favourite (of mine) video featuring (the great!) Madhur Jaffrey as foul-mouthed, blunt-smoking, badass granny. Enjoy!”
