Sony Music, Societe General, Adidas Partner for Upcoming Inspiring true story on Rugby-based UK/India Co-production ‘Jungle Cry’.
Official Film Trailer and Poster to be Unveiled During 2019 Festival de Cannes at Special
Global sportswear brand, adidas, has partnered with the much-awaited
sports biopic ‘Jungle Cry’ that recently completed filming in India and Wales. ‘Jungle Cry’ will
unveil its official trailer and poster at special events during the 72 nd Festival de Cannes.
Based on the lives of 12 underprivileged children from the Kalinga Institute of Social
Sciences in Orissa, ‘Jungle Cry’ follows their triumphant journey to the International Junior
Rugby Tournament held in England in 2007.
adidas, a company that started off with a core vision to support athletes, has always been
true to its positioning that is highlighted by the Adidas slogan, “Impossible is Nothing.”
The film also takes us through the journey of an underdog team comprising of 12 orphan
kids who played sport bare feet, went on to win the Junior Rugby Tournament thus
establishing that impossible is nothing.
Leading actor Abhay Deol comments, “Adidas has always been one of my favorite brands.
Having the boys and us don Adidas gear was indeed a treat! I fondly remember the boys
being very excited to lace up. This is the very spirit of the original underdog teenage
tribal heroes from Odisha who won the Rugby World Cup against South Africa... I can also
say that the same belief holds true for the kids facing the cameras in Jungle Cry.
Emily Shah, playing the part of Physio, in the film comments, “It has really
been a great association. The brand also seamlessly marries into the narrative of the film.
The true champion isn’t always the winner but the team with the most guts and right strategy.
Our story doesn’t define us, our journey does. Being involved in a male dominated sport does take
guts and it is a part of my character’s story. The respect and dedication she has to the boys is part of her journey.
I strongly believe in ‘Impossible is Nothing’.
