There is no doubt that Bollywood movies are packed with action, drama and entertainment. However, these movies also play inspirational roles in our life sometimes. For instance, the film 'Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani' has been made keeping millennials in mind, as it is wholly relatable to the phase of mental dilemma, ambitious spirit and passion for accomplishing that all of us have been through.
Likewise, the metaphorical dialogues of the movie intrigues and motivates the audience through various life lessons, such as,
"Main udna chahta hu, daudna chahta hu, girna bhi chahta hu. Bas, rukna nahi chahta,"
implying that a person should never stop trying due to the fear of failing.
Apart from the motivational lessons, some financial tips can be construed from the Bollywood dialogues as well. Following are a few famous Bollywood dialogues and the financial advice hidden between the lines:
"Paisa, paise ko kheechta hai."
- Emraan Hashmi - Jannat

"To achieve something new, you ought to leave something old, and you should leave at the very moment before you start experiencing grief and sorrows."
Financial Tip: It means that to thrive in life, a person needs to come out of their comfort zone. If you feel uncomfortable to invest your money in various stocks and mutual funds due to the lack of experience, then you need to acquire knowledge about the ongoing trends and try it out by investing in small amounts.
