India is evolving, and so are its people, and it is high time Bollywood evolved with them. Films like ‘Ghoomer’ and ‘OMG 2’ are raw and heartwarming, while also being educational, and are, therefore, pivotal in redefining what Bollywood is all about. They break stereotypes in so many ways, be it by talking about sex education on the silver screen or by showing a differently-abled character succeeding against all odds.

Akshay Kumar’s ‘OMG 2’ talks about the importance of sex education in a country like India while Abhishek Bachchan’s ‘Ghoomer’ is an inspiring story of how an athlete fights back against all odds to reclaim a spot in the national cricket team after losing a limb in an accident.

Stories like these are rare to come across, especially in a country like India where in many ways, ignorance is bliss. When A-listers like Akshay Kumar and Abhishek Bachchan are willing to break stereotypes and shackles, it fills us with hope. Bollywood needs films that dare to dream, willing to define an era and redefine an industry.
