The Olympic fever is taking over the world! So much that even Bollywood can’t help but show off their excitement on Twitter. From Sr. Bachchan to Shahid Kapoor expressing their support, it clearly shows how smitten our film industry is with sports. And it doesn’t end there, with the past few years churning successful sport-based films at the box-office, the craze is only mounting! So what are you waiting for? Get your dose of motivation from Bollywood’s best sport films so far and let the cheering for Team India begin!
Lagaan: Cricket may not be a part of Olympics but Aamir’s Lagaan made every bit of ‘desh bhakt’ in us cheer out loud for Bhuvan’s team. Hum dugna Lagaan nahi denge!
Song: Chale Chalo
Chak De India: Sattar minutes hai tumhare paas, aur ye sattar minutes khuda bhi tumse vapas nahi maang sakta! You’d be lying if this speech by Shah Rukh Khan and the nail-biting end of the film didn’t leave you feeling incredibly patriotic.
Song: Chak De India
Bhaag Milkha Bhaag: Farhan Akhtar’s sheer dedication to breathe life into the character of Milkha Singh, was undoubtedly an award-winning performance. Especially that moment when he crosses the finish line would probably make you want to dance in celebration. 😀
Song: Ab Tu Bhaag Milkha
Mary Kom: Kissi ko itna bhi mat darao, ki darr hi khatam ho jaye! Mary Kom won hearts nation-wide all thanks to Priyanka Chopra’s empowering act not, only as a boxer but also as a wife who goes against all odds to make her country proud.
Song: Salaam India
Sultan: One of 2016’s biggest hits so far, Salman Khan’s Sultan revamped the wrestling scene in India. You have to watch it to feel the excitement that rushes to your head every time he wins the game.
And joining these legends is our very own Happy next week! 😛
