On this day way back in 2001, 'Lagaan' hit the theatres and won over audiences everywhere. As the film completes 15 years, let's look at how Twitterati celebrated the event...

It's been 15 years since the Bollywood superstar Aamir Khan starrer 'Lagaan' was released and the Oscar nominated movie is still revered by movie lovers across India. The  2001 epic sports drama saw Ashutosh Gowariker established as a director.
