Khandaan: A Bollywood Podcast is back with Top Friend Beth from Beth Loves Bollywood to discuss 1998’s Shahrukh Khan double-header DUPLICATE.
Allegedly directed by Mahesh Bhatt, DUPLICATE was the first double role for SRK and he really put in the effort – but was it worth it? Beth finds herself in the unique position of having more nostalgia for a film than the other three for once.
Co-starring a radiant Juhi Chawla, an inept and badly sabotaged Sonali Bendre, a friendzoned Mohnish Behl. a loud Farida Jalal, and the cheapest villain’s lair ever seen on film, DUPLICATE gave us a lot to discuss. Join us as we put more thought into the discussion of this film than Mahesh Bhatt did to its direction and find out for once and for all just how much Asim loves Salman.
A short timeline:
- 00.11.02 Beth is watching I, CLAUDIUS for (another) podcast joke purposes and rewatching COMMUNITY and recommends y’all do so as well.
