Episode 51 : Filmfare Comp Results, Malang, SMZS and Sultan

Episode 51 of Khandaan: A Bollywood Podcast brings you 2016’s SULTAN starring Salman Khan and Anushka Sharma. Directed by Ali Abbas Zafar, SULTAN was part of Salman’s storied run at the box office, a sports drama about an out of shape wrestler whose rise, fall, and rise took you through every emotion in the book. Although it is a fairly recent release, we discuss how well it’s held up, how Salman is often his own worst enemy, and why our featured guest, Uday Bhatia, Film Critic at the Mint Lounge, chose this film as his pick of the week.

 A Short Timeline:
