Earlier this month, the Mumbai-based hip-hop dancers Kings United India has declared the global champions of the American reality show "World Of Dance". The judging panel of Jennifer Lopez, Ne-Yo and Derek Hough gave them a perfect score of 100 for their cinematic, "Baahubali" style performance.
Shailendra Singh has acquired rights to their story and said he found it to be a "glocal" narrative. According to a source, they are looking out for a global director, planning a 2020 release and also have plans to have actual team members be a part of the film.
Singh said: "The story of Kings United is a true account of 22 young strugglers from the slums of Nala Sopara, uniting through dance to take on the world.
