Film on tribal boys who won international rugby tournament
National Award-winning filmmaker Ujjwal Chatterjee says he is helming a film on the U-14 rugby team from the Bhubaneswar-based Kalinga Institute of Social Sciences (KISS) which won the International Schools Rugby Sevens Tournament in London in 2007.
"The children (12 tribal boys from Mayurbhanj, Jharkhand and Bhubaneswar) are the heroes in my film. It is produced by Children's Film Society of India (CFSI). It's about the children and how with the help of English coach, Paul Walsh, they won the tournament," he said.
"It will be shot in Kolkata, Bhubaneswar and London," he added.
Twelve boys from Mumbai, Kolkata and Bhubaneswar will portray the squad.
"Actor Jason West is playing Paul Walsh," Chatterjee added.
