New Delhi, Apr 24 (IBNS): Indian football fans can look forward to two interesting sports movies on television over the coming weekends thanks to Discovery channel's recently launched Movie Nights programme.

On April 29, the channel will telecast Cristiano Ronaldo-The World At His Feet and on May 6, it will beam Sleeping Giant –An Indian Football Story.

Both will be screened at nine pm. 

Cristiano Ronaldo-The World At His Feet is based on the life of the 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 sometime school too. It shows how he honed his natural ability, through sheer determination and commitment to his craft and shaped his attitude to conquer his fears and realize the ultimate dream – to be the best footballer in the world.

The movie has been narrated by award winning actor Benedict Cumberbatch and also features other football legends David Beckham, Wayne Rooney and Lionel Messi.

Sleeping Giant - An Indian Football Story is about the future of Indian football.

The movie, shot over two and a half years, 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.

The movie has been made by the same team who made the documentary 'The Four Year Plan', who found out about this story whilst shooting behind the scenes at QPR.
