As Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced today as National Startup Day, fashion has caught up with social media and people all over the world are going gaga over this new thing. It was long overdue considering the countless startups that keep popping up from time to time. After all, it wouldn’t be a bad move to cheer them up a bit more by designating a specific day for their celebration.
Even in this regard, Bollywood movies are never too far behind. Many films have shown stories of young entrepreneurs creating their own startup and the many ups and downs they face over the years. Here are some of the most popular movies in this category:
The film follows the rise of the ambitious Gurukant Desai (played by Abhishek Bachchan) as a successful entrepreneur in late 1950s India. Guru marries the lovely Sujata (played by Aishwarya Rai) for her dowry by chance and a bit of deception, only to later learn that he really loves her. Desai rises to prominence, but his business practices leave much to be desired, and soon ethical and moral newspaper tycoon Gupta (played by Mithun Chakraborty) is about to take Desai down. This showdown between what is considered good and what is considered bad in business is the subject of the film.
