2020 was a challenging year, the year of the Fleximan, the one who adapted to change - be it work from home, work at home, our everyday lifestyle or even everyday fashion. This year some icons influenced us with their humanitarian work in real life, while some entertained us thoroughly amidst the lockdown. What they all had in common was that they helped us learn something, inspiring us even in the toughest of times. So here are our top 5 icons who have aced #AdaptTo2020 challenge like no one else.
Always known for playing the bad guy, the hero’s friend or heroine’s brother on the big screen, Sonu Sood became a real life icon in 2020. All through the lockdown he helped thousands of migrants get home, even using social media platforms such as Twitter and Instagram to get in touch with people who wanted his help. Sporto salutes the spirit of Sonu Sood and hopes the humanitarian will continue to inspire us with his gym looks and good deeds in the years to come.
Famed theatre artist and Gujarati film actor Pratik Gandhi is the man who immortalized Harshad Mehta with his superb portrayal of the controversial investor in Scam 1992. The series which dropped on an OTT platform in the second half of 2020, took the country by storm and made Pratik an instant star! Pratik today is an inspiration to every struggler across the country and a perfect example of how far talent, hardwork and merit can take an individual. Sporto says kudos to this self-made star.
2020 was the year of entertaining icons and great content and for that reason Yashraj Mukhate deserves to be on this list. His ‘Rasode Mein Kaun Tha,’ parody which went viral, made this 25-year-old music composer a social media star and his work all the rage. Here’s hoping we see a lot more of him and from him in 2021. Sporto gives a round of applause to the man and his creativity.
Our Frontline Warriors
While this list is made up of individual icons, we believe it would be unfair to not include the real heroes of this very tough year - the frontline warriors of our nation. From doctors, healthcare professionals, lab technicians to policemen, our army jawaans and all the other brave hearts who worked tirelessly and dedicatedly through the pandemic, every Frontline Warrior truly deserves a Sporto salute this year.
