UK film makers shooting documentary on IPL
A team of documentary film makers from the United Kingdom are in India to shoot behind-the-scene actions of lucrative the Indian Premier League. The film makers have attained permission from the BCCI to shoot for only two games, today in Mumbai and then in Kolkata.
"A lot of people are worried about the future of Test cricket which is attracting less number of people. (Australian Test opener) Ed Cowan is a friend of ours and we followed him during his debut Test series against India. To talk about India you need to come here and that's why we are here to film what happens behind the IPL," said the documentary's producer Sam Collins.
Collins said the team has already talked to some former Indian cricketers, including Ravi Shastri and the just-retired Rahul Dravid and got their views on the matter. "We will be talking to N Srinivasan (BCCI president) and others," he added.
The documentary will be of 90-minute durations and Collins is hopeful of airing it in the UK as well as in India on TV channels and also in film theatres. PTI
