Tennis great Roger Federer sent Indian film buffs on social media into a tizzy as he asked for suggestions of Bollywood classics.

 

"Any movie suggestions? #AvengersAssemble #Aquaman," the 20-time Grand Slam champion posted on Twitter.

Soon after, fans stormed his timeline with suggestions like Wonder Woman and Detective Pikachu.

Seemingly unconvinced, Federer decided to seek more help from followers as he asked, "A Bollywood classic maybe?"

A fan gave him a complete list of a few Bollywood cults including Tare Zameen Par, Dangal, Lagaan, Mother India and Salaam Bombay to watch.

"Bollywood movies in IMDb Top 100 1) Tare Zameen Par (2007) 2) 3 Idiots (2009) 3) Dangal (2016) Oscar Nominated movies: 1) Lagaan (2001) 2) Mother India (1957) 3) Salaam Bombay (1988)," wrote a fan.

Whereas others suggested him to check out Ranveer Singh-starrer Gully Boy, which was recently selected as India's official entry for the Oscar Awards.

Most of the player's fans and followers recommended him popular sports dramas like Chak De! India, Dangal, Bhaag Milkha Bhaag, Lagaan and Sultan.

On the other hand, Twitterati also advised him to go for the "greatest movie ever made in Bollywood, DDLJ (Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge)"

"Watch DDLJ. Greatest movie ever made in Bollywood," commented a fan on Federer's post.

Akshay Kumar, Suniel Shetty, and Paresh Rawal hit comedy Hera Pheri was also suggested by many movie buffs.

The Swiss tennis great also quoted some tweets to post replies. "Thanks," wrote the 38-year old, to a fan who listed Sholay, Lagaan, Jodha Akbar and Dangal as his movie suggestions.
