2) Mary Kom: Mary Kom has proved to be a huge inspiration not only to women but sports persons all over. Overcoming various obstacles, the young mother and housewife has aced her sports career proving that women can be sports champions as well.

3) Sports biopic: Films like Shah Rukh Khan’s ‘Chak De! India’ and Farhan Akhtar’s ‘Bhaag Milkha Bhaag’ have introduced a new genre in the Indian film industry. Inspiring sports dramas provide a refreshing change from the usual rom-com and crime films.

4) Sanjay Leela Bhansali: The filmmaker is known for creating an incredible magic onscreen. Though Sanjay Leela Bhansali is producing ‘Mary Kom’, his name guarantees quality and entertainment, coupled with great story telling.
