Discovery spruces up weekends with soccer movies
MUMBAI: Infotainment broadcaster Discovery will bring the stories of footballing legends to viewer’s screens across India. ‘Cristiano Ronaldo-The world at his feet’ and ‘Sleeping Giant –An Indian football story’ are the two movies Discovery will premiere under its recently launched ‘Movie Nights’ on Saturday, 29 April and 6 May, at 9 pm.
These movies will encourage viewers to follow their dreams, and never give up. ‘Cristiano Ronaldo-The world At His Feet’ is based on the life of the current global Portuguese superstar who plays for Spanish club Real Madrid and the Portugal national team. The documentary reveals how he spent his childhood practicing football for hours, skipping his meals and sometimes school too. The movie further showcases how he honed his natural ability, through sheer determination and commitment to his craft and shaped his attitude to conquer his fears and realise the ultimate dream – to be the best footballer in the world.
On the other hand, ‘Sleeping Giant – An Indian Football Story’ is about the future of Indian football. The movie features the story of two ordinary children from Mumbai who followed their passion, persevered and earned a golden chance to play for famous football clubs in England.
