Every show we pick a random year form 3 decades of collectively 300 films the Khan’s have done. and let our listeners vote which movie we should talk about. Pick a team, make a vote, take us down nostalgia, punish us or make us reassess a movie we dismissed. We love the Khans and we would love for you all to be part of our Khandaan. Because when it comes to the Khans and Bollywood, nothing else really matters!

Behind The Mic

Asim Burney

Asim loves to love movies and he has a thousand inane arguments why you should love the things he loves. Massey to the annoyance of his co-hosts. Won’t miss a Farah Khan, Tarantino or Nolan movies if his live depends on it. (yes, in that order)

Martin Cawley

Martin is a generalist when it comes to movies & almost pathologically wary of any film more than two hours long. Passions include Alfred Hitchcock, James Bond, Akira Kurosawa and 1970s Italian giallos.  Happy watching anything slightly different, recent favourites are Brick, Drive, Colossal and Il Divo.

Sujoy Singha

Sujoy is a nerd at heart, and likes all things geeky – from tech to techno noir. 

Once upon a time, he used to blog, but now deals with the bigger picture of life’s uncertainties – what’s the bloody point, dammit?!

So, Bollywood masala keeps him sane enough to function. He sometimes rants on podcasts, and still manages to space out.

Amrita Rajan

Thanks to Indian piracy, Amrita grew up obsessed with all things cinematic. She’ll watch
anything once, irrespective of language or genre, and she’ll usually have 10 opinions afterward.
As host of the Khandaan podcast, she’s happy to rain on the parade of her co-hosts and
fanboys, Asim and Sujoy, and occasionally join them for a full freakout because this gossip
queen is not made of stone.
In her civilian life, she travels the world and does interesting things. You can also listen to her other podcast about vintage masala moves,

When, while the lovely valley teems with vapour around me, and the meridian sun strikes the upper surface of the impenetrable foliage of my trees, and but a few stray.

Steal into the inner sanctuary, I throw myself down among the tall grass by the trickling stream and, as I lie close to the earth, a thousand unknown plants are noticed by me.

When I hear the buzz of the little world among the stalks, and grow familiar with the countles
