The movie showcases how a man contributed to football becoming a popular sport in India, a nation devoted to cricket. Audiences and critics alike were deeply affected by the difficulties, hardships, and unwavering commitment that the coach and his players demonstrated in real life.

Farhan Akhtar In Bhaag Milkha Bhaag

A biopic of Commonwealth Games and multiple Asian Games medal-winning Indian sprinter Milkha Singh, Bhaag Milkha Bhaag sees Farhan Akhtar in the titular role and it was declared a super hit at the box office and is the sixth highest-grossing 2013 Bollywood film worldwide. It bagged two National Film Awards in the categories- Best Popular Film Providing Wholesome Entertainment and Best Choreography. For the film, Farhan went through a massive physical transformation and left everyone stunned. One of the finest Bollywood sports movies, it's based on the book The Race of My Life, written by Milkha Singh and his daughter.

Aamir Khan In Dangal

The plot of Dangal revolves around the legendary Phogat family of wrestlers, especially Geeta Phogat, Babita Kumari, and their father Mahavir Singh Phogat. In the biopic, Aamir played the role of Geeta and Babita's mentor Mahavir Phogat. The story portrays how Aamir Khan's character, amateur wrestler Mahavir Singh Phogat, lived his dream through his daughters, who went on to win gold medals at the Commonwealth Games, despite being forced to give up the sport. The film received high praise from critics and was recognised with numerous awards worldwide and in India. Possibly one of the best sports films ever made in India is Dangal.

Priyanka Chopra In Mary Kom

A remarkable performance was given by Priyanka Chopra in the 2014 film of the eponymous film, which is based on the life of the legendary Indian boxer MC Mary Kom. Priyanka went through a major body transformation to get into the skin of the character in this biopic. She went through a lot of training to perfect Mary Kom's boxing technique, to the point where even the most ardent boxing fans would find it difficult to find any flaws in her portrayal of the action. The film Mary Kom, which depicted her journey as a fighter and her juggling of family and career, received a lot of positive reviews and had the biggest opening weekend ever for an Indian film starring a lady.

Irrfan Khan In Paan Singh Tomar

Paan Singh Tomar is an intense film because of the amazing true story of its namesake, not because the filmmakers fictionalised it.
Paan Singh Tomar's running prowess was discovered as a result of his military punishment of being forced to run on the parade ground. After going on to win the national championship in the steeplechase for seven years and set a record for ten, Paan Singh Tomar became notorious due to conflicts in his village. The movie sees Irrfan Khan in the lead role of Paan Singh Tomar.
