Welcome to Episode 12 of the Khandaan Podcast! This week we’re discussing 2006’s Jaan-e-Mann, starring Salman Khan, Akshay Kumar, and Preity Zinta.

While JEM has gained a bit of a cult following in the years since its release, it was a disastrous flop when it came out. An uneasy marriage between troubling Bollywood stereotypes and a whimsical ode to classic Hollywood musicals, JEM is by turns fantastic and repulsive. Asim, Sujoy and Amrita have plenty to discuss when it comes to the themes of the film, its reception, the stars, the makers and its place in Bollywood history.

Meanwhile, we discuss a few housekeeping items of interest to our loyal listeners and discuss a few current events such as the reactions to the Race 3 trailer, Salman Khan’s increasingly visible disinterest in song-and-dance routines, and a trio of remarkable interviews: one in which Madhuri Dixit can barely hide her disdain for Rajeev Masand; and two in which Anupama Chopra skillfully drew out Madhuri and Bobby Deol, who dominated the chatter cycle this week with a highly emotional response. Don’t miss the amazing gifs by Sujoy on our Upodcast Twitter feed!

We also recommend this fun Madhuri interview by AIB! Don’t forget to send your screenshots and requests to upodcasting@gmail.com.
