Manufacturing Dissent Since 1996
New interviews throughout the week

Perpwalking Salman Khan down the crowded footpath towards justice.


Everytime Bollywood’s most popular star gets close to going to jail, a deus or something comes ex machina to pull him from the jaws of justice.

Live from Mumbai, Bollywood insider Jeff Dorchen casts Salman Khan as a handsome, penitent killer of men and deer, alongside suicidal fans, mobsters, mechanical Hanumans, and skeptical taxi drivers. Then Jeff gives us an update on the filming of his movie “Basmati Blues,” and his discovery of neer dosas and Bombay ducks.
