Although there is yet a lot to uncover, it is known that it will be directed by Badhaai Ho fame Amit Ravindernath Sharma, and will star National Award Winner Keerthy Suresh and Bengali Actor Rudranil Ghosh in other significant roles.

The movie will majorly focus on the throwback to the time when the Indian Football Team won Asian Games twice, in 1951 and 1962.

Bollywood being on the path of breaking the prejudice of making typical masala movies, we think this is a welcome change!
Hope this turns out to be as good as our anticipations!
