Biopics have become a trend of the season. There are so many biopics that Bollywood has produced and almost all of them have been a hit amongst the audience. But what is more intriguing is the fact that sports biopic especially seems to be catching the fancy of the aam janta. There are so many sports star in the country who have risen above their personal limitation and circumstances and achieved something not just for themselves but for the nation. Due to limited coverage, so many heart-warming stories of these stars are left unknown and it is great to see Bollywood take an initiative and project the lives of such great personalities on-screen.
