Bollywood True Story Movies:
You must have noticed that Bollywood movies that are based on true stories are appreciated more than the fictional ones. People tend to love real-life stories more, and we can’t blame them, because honestly, stories that are real tend to inspire us more because of practicality. But did you know that many blockbuster Bollywood movies are supposedly based on real stories but the makers of the film practiced something called cinematic liberty? Cinematic liberty is used by the makers of the film to make the film more entertaining and engaging. We present you Bollywood true stories that fudged the truth.
Akshay Kumar’s movie Airlift was appreciated and admired for story and performance. If you look at the poster carefully, you will see that the makers have mentioned that the movie is “based on a true event” which means that the makers have used their creative liberty in the film. The scene where the character of the Indian Ambassador is shown as unsympathetic is not so mean in real life. In reality, he did keep many Indians in the embassy until they all were rescued.
Rustom starring Akshay Kumar and Ileana D’crus was also a commercial success. In the movie, there was a scene where Rustom was given a not-guilty verdict by the court, and after this, he shifted to Canada with his wife. In reality, Rustom did spend two years in jail before leaving for Canada.
Aamir Khan’s Dangal was a commercial success, and the entire film was awe-inspiring. But do you remember the last scene where Aamir’s character was locked up in a store, and he wasn’t able to watch her daughter’s match? Wasn’t it emotional? If you ask us, it was the most gut-wrenching scene of the entire film. In reality, none of it happened. Geeta’s father very much saw his daughter’s performance, and he even cheered for her in the stadium. Also, Geeta won that match with a great margin. Shocking, right!?
4. The dirty Picture
Vidya Balan gave her best in portraying the south Indian film industry actress Silk Smitha’s character on screen. She was unbelievably amazing, and this role fetched her massive recognition and respect from the industry. In the movie, it is shown that Vidya’s character died of an overdose of sleeping pills. But in reality, Smitha’s death is a mystery, and no one really knows what happened.
Sonam Kapoor’s Neerja was an emotional film, and even Sonam Kapoor won the National Award for her performance. This is true that real-life Neerja lost her life while saving the passengers, but the crew members also helped Neerja in her mission. This part was not shown in the movie.
Jahvni Kapoor starer Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl released this year on Netflix. As soon as the movie released, social media was flooded with tweets claiming that the movie is “peddling lies”. Even the real-life Gunjan Saxena tweeted that the makers did use cinematic liberties in the making of the film, and she also claims that they did not exaggerate the real Gunjan Saxena.
After the release of Sanju, many people were angry with the makers of the film because this movie did not quite really include every event that led to his arrest. Moreover, in the film, there is a fictional character called Kamlesh who is shown as a loyal friend of Sanjay Dutt and the guy who stood by Dutt in his fight against drug addiction. In reality, there is no Kamlesh, but a group of friends Kumar Gaurav, Raj Bansal, Ajay Arora, Pradeep Singh, and Ajay Marwah who were the constant face of support.
