“My inbox is full of requests from filmmakers but we are not really interested in putting cameras in the kids’ house right now. We are already short-staffed,” said the coach.

Filmmakers Sohail Tatari and Dilip Deo have been trying to convince him for the film but Gastler has put his foot down. However, Sohail hasn’t given up hope.

“There has been miscommunication. I want to make a film by drawing inspiration from the lives and achievements of the girls, not shoot with them,” he said.

On the other hand, Dilip Deo, who had sought to collaborate with Gastler for a film titled Maradona, said he would make the film, regardless of the consent.

“I belong to Ranchi and had planned the film much before Gastler came into their lives. I did ask him to come on board but he refused. My story is about the struggles of these girls and there cannot be any copyright issue of stories of struggle and triumph,” said the editor-turned-filmmaker.
