This is in Hindi (with some bits in English) but of surprisingly clear quality after the first few minutes, it is very clear that PNB holds UAK in great regard by his tone and general demeanor. He is praising UAK for the purity of his music as much as he is asking questions. In the interview UAK describes

1) his approach to Sargam --
2) talks about his Sufi inspiration and describes what a Sufi is
3) Talks about Tarana and UAK special twist on it
4) NB praises the sweetness of UAK khyal and commends his "Bhava"
5) Talks about why he avoided Thumri ragas like Bhairavi, Piloo and Khamaj. He says he has never heard any good khyal compositions in Bhairavi
6) UAK is asked what Raga is -- he simply says a composition -- sings some Bilaskhani Todi at the end as nobody has ever really been able to answer this question

Thanks for pointing out the closed caption english.
I really wanted to know what they were saying.
Amir Khan and Nikhil Banerjee are two of my musical heroes.
Thanks
