Having won the World Cup consecutively in 2012 and 2017 – India has been at the pinnacle of the sport for the last decade. Ronnie Screwvala’s motion picture company RSVP continues on its path of backing exceptional stories that need to be told. “We are world champions in cricket for the visually impaired. I immensely appreciate the effort and am positive that this film will help make blind cricket more popular among the masses,” says Mr. Ronnie Screwvala for taking the initiative in making a movie on blind cricket, which is inspired by true events. Excited to collaborate with the CABI – Cricket Association for the Blind in India,” adds Screwvala. India is the dominant force in the sport across all formats – One-day internationals and Twenty20. The board is delighted a film is being made on the sport. However, overall RSVP believes in strong narratives and we, therefore, focus on – stories that need to be told, stories that we would love to tell, stories that people go to the movies for. The backdrop helps tell an inspiring story about a character who never ceases to believe in the power of his dreams, despite the hurdles life throws his way.”
World Blind Cricket (WBC) is the governing body for blind cricket worldwide. Our story is with this backdrop and based on multiple true events of this sport. Blind cricket is a version of cricket adapted for blind and partially sighted people. We need inspirational stories in our movies and role models in real life and I believe this narrative will do that and more and yet entertain and enthrall us at the core. Team India is run by the Cricket Association for the Blind in India (CABI). When we tried checking for more details on who would be directing the film and who will be cast in the film, the RSVP team told us, “We do not have anything more to share. Very proud moment. Talking about the film, Ronnie Screwvala said, “The film is an inspirational sports drama set against this unique canvas. And for us the inspiration for this movie was that it is a story that must be told.”
