Extra Special: WAR, The Family Man, Bard of Blood
Episode 44 of Khandaan: A Bollywood Podcast is all about WAR, starring Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff. This departure from our Khan focus is due to a number of factors, including the absence of co-host Sujoy, but we wanted y’all to have an episode to tide you over!
Director Siddharth Anand re-unites with Hrithik after the Knight and Day remake Bang Bang, which was all about the chemistry between Hrithik and Katrina Kaif. This time, Hrithik is paired with Tiger, and the screen is nearly set ablaze with their chemistry. And it truly is chemistry unlike anything we’ve seen in Bollywood before. Top friend Beth Watkins from BethLovesBollywood joins us to discuss and many laughs are had.
