Assam: Film on football to feature NEUFC’s Durga Boro and Shillong Lajong’s Alen Deory
GUWAHATI: With the growing popularity of football in the country and also so many rising stars from the Northeast region making a name for themselves in the football scene, it is no wonder that Chandra Muloi, an Assamese filmmaker is making a film on the football. The film will have popular Assamese footballers such as Shillong Lajong's Alen Deory and NEUFC's Durga Boro.
He plans to shoot the movie which will feature the rural areas of the state and also focus on how improper infrastructure and training hampers the growth of the sport and hence loses many potential players in the state. Most players from the region come from extremely modest backgrounds so it is heartening to see how their struggles are being highlighted and acknowledged. The film will star Akashdeep as the protagonist and is slated to be released sometime in mid 2017.
