Chak De had tough competition from Rajnikanth
for Sivaji and Bollywood's Badshah Shahrukh
Khan for the coveted award.
A film which did not confine itself to
any of Bollywood's axioms was virtually
written off at the start. Shah Rukh without
a heroine to waltz around conifers is something
completely weird in terms of Bollywood parlance.
But the film proved everyone wrong by captivating
the hearts of both mass and class and is
one of the biggest commercial successes
of the year.
Hence it is only right that the makers
of such films are given their due credit
and encouragement and CNN-IBN has just done
that. Behindwoods congratulates the duo
for winning the award and also for making
fellow countrymen realize that there are
also interesting sports other than cricket.
Kudos to them.
