After the super success of Mary Kom, Omung Kumar is all set to direct another sports drama – this time on a sport that is very similar to rugby. Produced by Sandeep Singh, the film titled YubiLukpi will take the filmmaker-producer duo back to the North East.
YubiLukpi is a local Manipuri sport and is played with coconuts and said to be similar to rugby. Some believe that YubiLukpi was the original version of rugby. Omung Kumar has been working on the film for the past two years.
The film will be shot in Manipur and London, since the story revolves around Manipur and then England. Portions of the film will be shot in Mauritius as well. The final shoot locations will be decided based on the story.
Omung is working with a team of writers to make sure every aspect of the story is got right. As with Mary Kom, the director-producer duo is looking to hire local talent to make sure the film looks authentic.
YubiLukpi’s shooting will commence in 2019.
