Superfan: The Nav Bhatia Story

Amar Wala
Canada, 2021, 53 min.

In English.
Includes adult language.

 “I don’t drink, I don’t womanize, I only Raptorize.” -- Nav Bhatia. From persecution to pride of place at every Toronto Raptors game, Superfan tells the powerful story of Nav Bhatia’s amazing journey and his love story with his favorite team, the Toronto Raptors. Come join us as we follow the Raptors’ success story through the lens of Nav’s single minded devotion—right from their inception in 1995, to their heady and almost unbelievable Championship win in 2019.  The documentary examines how the journey of the Toronto Raptors from no-hopers to World Champions in so many ways mirrors Nav Bhatia’s journey as an immigrant. 

Director's Statement

Superfan is more than a story of a fan of basketball, it is the story of how an immigrant survived and excelled by using basketball as a means to integrate into the mainstream and how an NBA expansion team paralleled the immigrant story in Canada.
