Nav Bhatia is likely the most recognizable car dealer in the country.
While his two dealerships in the Toronto area — Mississauga Hyundai and Rexdale Hyundai — are prominent and prosperous, his notoriety is definitely a function of his off-hours passion — the Toronto Raptors.
Bhatia, aka the “Super Fan,” hasn’t missed a Raptors’ home game in 22 years. And with courtside seats and a gregarious personality, millions of TV viewers have seen him energetically supporting the home team, and engaging with players and everyone else around him.
More fame came his way Sept. 9, when he found himself on the “red carpet” alongside some celebrity A-listers, before a gala screening of the documentary, The Carter Effect, at the 2017 Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF).
He was one of the many sports personalities and celebrities featured in the documentary, which examines the rise of the Toronto Raptors, and how the team helped put Toronto on the world’s pop culture map, and the pivotal role that number 15, Vince Carter, played in those two ascendancies.
The production company behind the film is Uninterrupted, the brainchild of NBA star LeBron James. James joined Drake as one of the four producers of the film.
