Let’s celebrate the fandom in you! #Fantastic9

The stardom of stars is due to the fandom of fans. There are times when the fans run after their favourite actor’s car, when they gather in huge multitude outside their much loved celebrity’s house waiting for that one glimpse when he/she would move into the balcony and wave at them; the look of joy in their eyes is priceless. It is this enormous love that makes this relationship so special. This is the kind of passion that the fans have for the biggest stars of our Hindi film industry and it’s time to celebrate the fandom!

With YRF’s new campaign Fantastic9, we celebrate the true fandom of top nine Bollywood stars like Amitabh Bachchan, Deepika Padukone, Arjun Kapoor, Priyanka Chopra, Ranveer Singh, Anushka Sharma, Hrithik Roshan, Katrina Kaif and Aamir Khan. With this, it’s time for the fans to take centre stage! Let’s celebrate the never ending devotion of fans which has made the actors the megastars that they are today.

Witness this never seen before extravaganza that fans all over the world will rejoice being part of. You wouldn’t want to miss it for anything.

Films Forever – A journey through classics!

Some movies remain in our hearts forever. Some in the way of their music, some are remembered for their ground-breaking plots, some for their exotic locales and some for the trends they introduced that have lasted generations. The timeless masterpieces have left people with fond memories, and have entertained audiences home and abroad.These movies etch a special place in our hearts and memories.

The journey which started with Daag: A Poem of Love has since captured the imagination of the masses with each venture. How can one forget Amit’s poetic act in Kabhi Kabhie, the mesmeric songs that every guy sang for his loved one, or the beauty of Noorie that charmed audiences, and Chandni’s affable andaz with the scenic locales adding an X-factor to the proceedings. Nisha’s powerful depiction of an obsessed lover in Doosra Aadmi gave a glimpse of the intense side of human emotions. And who can forget the iconic Vijay in Kaala Patthar fighting against his inner demons.

So, get ready for the #FilmsForever fiesta, a journey down memory lane and relive the magic of movies!

Chak De! India inspires a Fastpitch softball team

Dear Messrs. Amin and Sahni, 

I have never been moved enough by a film in my life to write a “fan letter”. This indeed is one, but you should also consider it a note of gratitude. 

Your film, Chak De! India, was recommended by our school’s girls’ field hockey coach to me and it resonated deeply with me.

I coach fastpitch softball (a girl’s sport similar to baseball) and our program’s hierarchy of priorities, organization, team, player, are beautifully realized and reinforced by your exquisite film. 

Further, like the protagonist in your film, I am an accidental coach of girls and we had a difficult journey (over four years!) when I took over the program and it ended happily. (Please see photo.) 

My only regret is that I did not discover your film until a few days ago. Be assured that its viewing will be an annual ritual in our program here; we as a group have already seen the bit when then girls announce who they are. We will watch the entire film during a team building session following our return from spring training in Florida.

Thank you so much for making a film that is so meaningful to me and that will have lasting import upon the girls with which I work for years to come.

If you ever happen to be in the Detroit, MI area, please do not hesitate to contact me so I might have the chance to thank you personally.
