Episode 39 came as a bit of a surprise - we didn’t expect so many people would be interested in the Dreamz Unlimited movie Phir Bhi Dil Hai Hindustani. Directed by Aziz Mirza who had previously found a great deal of success with the starring duo of Shahrukh Khan and Juhi Chawla, this film from the year 2000 was oddly prescient about the direction and corruption of cable news shows in the 21st century as they hunt for ratings and ge...
