Split Screen Podcast: Episode 14 – The Sequel To The Most Anticipated Bollywood Movies Of 2016

Published by Shah Shahid on

Last year, I decided to break format on the Split Screen Podcast, and feature an episode that looked at upcoming Bollywood films. Samarpita Dutta (from BollyBrit.com) and I looked at, bitched about, and rambled on and on about the Bollywood movies coming up in 2016. The episode was quite successful, as I’ve gotten a lot of feedback regarding it. So I’m going to do now what most film studios when one project gets super successful; make a sequel.

You can find the original episode here: Split Screen Podcast: Episode 7 – The Most Anticipated Bollywood Movies Of 2016.

So this is Episode 14 of the Split Screen Podcast – The sequel to the most anticipated Bollywood movies of 2016.

The Split Screen Podcast usually compares a film remake to its original material, like another movie or comic book. But this is a special episode, following up on another episode where we discuss, how the first half of the yea was for Bollywood movies. You can find all the regular episodes of the Split Screen Podcast here.

Aamir Khan’s ‘DANGAL’ (2017) Trailer Is Everything We Expected And More · October 26, 2016 at 8:51 AM

[…] 'Dangal' is directed by Nitesh Tiwari, whose previous films haven't been anywhere near the scale of this one, mostly being comedies like 'Bhootnath Returns'. The 'Dangal' writing team consists of the same writers as 'Kill Dil' (my Review) and 'Bhootnath Returns'.
