Inspired by real life characters
As Milkha Singh promises to scorch the track and celluloid this week, he comes in a long line of Bollywood films inspired by real life characters. Very few films name their inspiration to avoid the obvious problems of lawsuits and outrages for cinema liberties taken but you have to be Rip Van Winkle not to recognize them!
We bring you Filmy Friday, a column by Diptakirti Chaudhuri.
Chaudhuri is crazy about Bollywood. In fact, he is crazy enough to have
written a book on Bollywood trivia. He can be found on Twitter and Blogger by his first name.
