Actor Randeep Hooda, who played a mixed martial arts (MMA) artist in “Do Lafzon Ki Kahani” and will be seen as superstar Salman Khan’s wrestling coach in “Sultan”, says films on sports are “very necessary”.
“Films on sports are very necessary. It gives birth to a sporting culture, which I think, we need as a country,” Randeep told IANS over phone from Mumbai on the sidelines of #ShareTheLoad course launch by Akshara Centre and Ariel India on Thursday.
The #ShareTheLoad course will be taken to universities to help educate the next generation on gender bias within one’s household.
“Films about boxing and MMA, like ‘Do Lafzon Ki Kahani’ or ‘Sultan’, are ultimately about an all-encompassing sport. The whole thing about sports movies or boxing movies — which is a genre in Hollywood — is to draw the parallel of struggle within the ring in life,” he added.
The “Sarbjit” actor said that these “are very inspirational films”.
“These are always very inspirational films. They should be made. There can never be enough inspiration,” he added.
