Filmmaker Hansal Mehta, who is currently riding high on the success of his new sports drama Chhalaang, has revealed why sports-based films do well.
According to Mehta, the story of an underdog resonates with the audiences.
“I think everybody loves a good underdog story. Everybody loves sports and an underdog story. I mean who doesn’t like an underdog fighting. Who doesn’t love watching that? That is the reason my show ‘Scam 1992: The Harshad Mehta Story’ worked because it is an underdog story,” Mehta told IANS.
Chhalaang, starring Rajkummar Rao and Nushrratt Bharuccha, revolves around a PT teacher and sports education.
