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.

Sultan’s teaser doesn’t reveal much….

A very short teaser released for Sultan, Salman Khan’s 2nd collaboration with YRF after the massive success of Ek Tha Tiger. Although we’re no fans of such short teasers or motion posters but we’re always willing to make an exception for Sallu Bhai.

What is interesting is how Sultan’s been announced to release at a date that was already booked for Raees starring YRF (former) blue eyed man-boy SRK. YRF has moved away from the grand romantic movies that made SRK the star he is today so it’s quite surprising they would pull such a move. Although YRF is known for being quite aggressive with when it comes to locking in cinema screens as they did when Jab Tak Hai Jaan released and completely destroyed any chances of Ajay Devgn’s Son of Sardaar working.

Both films are still in the near future so things might change but at the moment, we seem to be heading for a clash.

Produced by Aditya Chopra and written-directed by Ali Abbas Zafar, the film will commence shooting in November and will release in Eid 2016.
