Bollywood Featured What's Happenin'

Yash Raj Films salutes Indian Paralympians at Rio and will reward Mariyappan Thangavelu in a special way!

Yash Raj Films continues to salute every SULTAN at Rio!

After Yash Raj Films announced to honour Indian athletes who won Gold at Rio Olympics with 10L cash, YRF is now very proud to announce that they will reward Paralympian gold medal winners too and salutes Mariyappan Thangavelu for his historic Gold win in men’s high jump T-42!


The studio believes to celebrate the sportsman spirit of these athletes and their life sized dream that emerged victorious! The 10 lakh rupee cash reward for Rio Paralympics winners is a gesture on similar lines- that of saluting the indomitable spirit of sports and champions, against all odds and every small gesture goes a long way.

YRF is known to back sports subjects in Hindi cinema. With Chak De! India, Yash Raj Films had backed a subject few would touch- and won over audiences with an entertaining, powerful message in support of women in sport. With Sultan, the film studio has repeated this feat- by once again batting for supporting sports in India and empowering women and lesser-privileged sections within the sporting arena. In it’s strong and game changing stories about Indian sport, Yash Raj Films remains a pioneer.
