Knowledge of animation and CGI can boost your carries in the film industry.

On the other hand, sports do the same things. Playing or watching sports does not only give you training and practice about a particular game. But, for those who can understand, a cricket match or a football game is not just a play. Let’s take the example of cricket. When the pitch is not helping a batsman, or the bowler is very tough to play, what he does? He plays safe, takes time to hit a ball, and don’t try to go over the top. Otherwise, he can lose his wicket. Similar, when the life shows you unlikely grounds, you don’t have to stop.

A good comedy or a chilling horror lightens your mood and gives you some extra time to bond with someone you want. No one can forget the hostel life, when we used to watch movies without attending the classes or when you booked a ticket from your office printer so that you can see the film with your girlfriend.

Similarly, watching games together with your closed one will make your relationship stronger. Studies show that a couple watching sports together are more satisfied and happy when compared to couples who split off while one of them is watching cricket or hockey.

Helps you to build a great personality
