Bollywood Hollywood Release Jungle Cry

Bollywood Hollywood Production announced today that they will give Sagar Ballary’s Jungle Cry a theatrical release in the US and Canada, UK, Germany, France, Australia, New Zealand, Singapore and South Africa in April. The film will also screen for buyers in this year’s Berlinale at the end of February. Headed by Veteran Mumbai and Hollywood producer Prashant Shah (My Name is Khan, The Bruce Lee Project), Bollywood Hollywood Production is kicking off its theatrical distribution ambitions with the eagerly anticipated UK/India co-production rugby biopic.

Directed by Sagar Ballary (Bheja Fry), the triumphant story features Abhay Deol (Hero, Line of Decent), Emily Shah (Fortune Defies Death), Atul Kumar (Manto), Stewart Wright (Doc Martin, Doctor Who) and Julian Lewis Jones (Invictus, Justice League). The film also features cameos by some of the top names in the sport, including world famous rugby referee Nigel Owens, Wales and British Lions fly half Phil Bennett and Collin Charvis, former captain of the Wales National Rugby Union Team. Emily Shah is also Executive Producer on the film. 

Showcasing the culture and heritage of Wales, the World Premiere of Jungle Cry is on 10th March at the Ffwrnes Theatre Llanelli in Carmarthenshire and is hosted by The Government of Wales with the support of First Minister of Wales Mark Drakeford.



Jungle Cry follows the incredible journey of 12 underprivileged children who came from the most extreme tribal areas, playing sports bare foot and went on to win to the prestigious U14 Rugby World Cup in England.

The ‘Jungle Crows’ rugby team came from the Kalinga Institute of Social Sciences in Orissa, India which has over 30,000 children from tribal, underprivileged and orphaned backgrounds and strives to eradicate poverty through education and sports. The inspirational team, along with coaches Rudraksha Jena and Paul Walsh MBE, went on to make Indian and British history.

Aligned with the film’s vision of harnessing and cultivating athletic talent, long time rugby supporter Societe General and global sportswear brand ADIDAS join as brand partners.

Prashant Shah commented; “Jungle Cry is truly an inspiring film that promotes education, sports and helps eradicate poverty and create patriotism for every nation and we are very excited to release it to a global audience of cinemagoers in April.
