Ep 53- Khandaan Ko Rona Aa Gaya – Saajan

Episode 53 of Khandaan: A Bollywood Podcast is your refuge from the monotony of lockdown, wherever you might be experiencing it. Top Friend Beth rejoins us for the second dose of bitter medicine as Sujoy chooses his winner for the FilmFare challenge: 1991’s SAAJAN starring Salman Khan, Sanjay Dutt, and Madhuri Dixit with Reema Laagoo, Kader Khan, Laxmikant Berde and others. This take on Cyrano de Bergerac is a real trip back to the 1980s with music by Nadeem Shravan, choreography by Chinni Prakash, lyrics by Sameer, produced by Sudhakar Bokade, and directed by Lawrence D’Souza. We drag Beth back to the hellscape of our childhood to thoroughly discuss why we made her watch a movie that sapped her will to live in these difficult times.
Question: are we now a Madhuri Dixit podcast? And would La Dixcast be the worst thing?
