This week on 'Has It Aged Well?' Abbas and Urjita are joined by film critic Mayank Shekhar to talk about his favourite film - 1992's 'Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikander'. Topics discussed include: The 'alternate' version of JJWS starring Milind Soman that never released, what made Deepak Tijori's Shekhar Malhotra an iconic villain, Marmik Singh's magnetic screen presence and why he couldn't build upon it, Aamir Khan's star making turn in the 90s, Farah Khan's essential contribution to this film and perhaps all of Bollywood, the weird geography of this film, why 'Ram Lals cafe' is missing an apostrophe, Mayank's take on today's films and a lot more.
