Documentary about the 'BAFTA Scotland' awards from Real Kashmir bags 2019

NEW DELHI: A documentary about Real Kashmir FC has won the prestigious Scotland Awards of the British Academy of Film and Television (BAFTA) 2019 in a brilliant ceremony in Glasgow, Scotland.

The documentary narrates the trip of former Rangers ace David Robertson as the coach of Real Kashmir FC, who in his first season finished third in the I-League , which is currently the second football league in India.

The hour-long film, which was aired by BBC Scotland earlier this year, won in the 'Unique Documentary' category.

It feels amazing to have received this award on one of the world's largest platforms, BAFTA, said Sandeep Chattoo, co-founder of Real Kashmir FC.

Our dream, which began as a small team of Kashmiri Youth, playing football as a hobby, soon became one of the biggest and most successful dream races of any team.

This award is a tribute to each and every one of the people who have contributed to making this club what it is today. I thank David for his selfless effort to keep the team together and I would also like to thank Greg Clarke for making the story wonderfully on screen, he added.

The program director, Clark, was also nominated in the 'Director - Real' category, but the prize was lost to Matt Pinder, who was declared the winner of his film 'Murder Case'.

Real Kashmir had a fairytale journey in their debut I-League season in 2017-18 as the team scripted some memorable wins against top sides including East Bengal and Mohun Bagan as they finished with 36 points from 19 games.
