Apart from being a medium of entertainment, movies are also a huge source of information. Time and again, films end up educating and inspiring us. The art of storytelling in the form of cinema is often appreciated and enjoyed more than other media and filmmakers never step back from telling us new stories every now and then. In the last year itself, Bollywood put in the spotlight a real superhero, Arunachalam Muruganantham, who put his relationships and life on stake for the welfare of women. Then, we were also told the story and struggles of Bollywood’s own Sanju Baba through Rajkumar Hirani‘s Sanju.

The coming year has a great line-up of biographies that will bring alive some of the most cherished stories and characters. We have listed eight of them below:

1. The Accidental Prime Minister (11th January)

One of the most awaited biopics, The Accidental Prime Minister is based on the life of economist and politician Manmohan Singh, who served as the Prime Minister of the country from 2004 to 2014.
