As Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced today as National Startup Day, fashion has taken over social media and people around the world are gaga about this new thing. It was too late, given the myriad start-ups that keep popping up. After all, it would not be a bad gesture to raise their morale a little more by setting a specific day for their celebration.

Even in this respect, Bollywood movies are never far behind. There have been numerous films that have shown the stories of young entrepreneurs creating their own startups and the many ups and downs they face all these years. Here is a look at some of the most popular movies in this category:

Desai is coming to the fore, but his business practices leave much to be desired, and soon the Gupta tycoon (played by Mitun Chakraborti), a moral and ethical man, is about to destroy Desai. This controversy between what is considered good and what is considered bad in business is the subject of the film.
