It feels really good to see Bollywood movies based on real life characters. If anything, they serve as great inspirations to us, they make us understand that all can be achieved if you have passion, that your current circumstances can’t define the future you, and these are definitely some stories that one should hear about.
So while some Bollywood movies are exclusively based on the lives of some such people, there are movies which draw great inspiration from such people and don’t admit that they have been inspired from someone’s lives. So have a look at the reel vs real of some such legends:
