Excel Entertainment’s ‘Gold’ will start a trend of Sports films!

Excel Entertainment‘s one of the most ambitious projects ‘Gold’ releases this year. Its almost as if ‘Gold’ is all set to start a new trend of team sports films which are based on true events. The film is about India’s first Olympic medal win as a free nation in the year 1948 at Games of the XIV Olympiad, London.

The film will be followed by another team sports film ’83’ which is based on one of the most important events in the Indian cricket history.

In 1983, the Indian Cricket Team won the Cricket World Cup in England. This was the first time ever that any team apart from the West Indies ever won the world cup. And it was the first time ever, that an Indian team won any prominent tournament. It’s almost as this win taught India to win!

Not only ’83, after ‘Gold’ there will be a series of sports biopic which will hit the silver screens in the future. Films like Abhinav Bindra Biopic, Saina Nehwal Biopic, Biopic on Gopichand, P.V. Sindhu Biopic will get released in the coming years.
