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.
