Omung Kumar, who made a successful directorial debut in Bollywood with 'Mary Kom' earlier this year, says he will turn producer with his next movie, which also a sports-based tale.

"I'm turning producer with my next film, which I won't be directing but only be producing. As a creative person, I want to encourage young talent and help them. I've almost locked my next film as a producer, but haven't signed the contract yet," Omung told IANS.

Elucidating on the project, he said: "The film that I'm producing is also a sports-based film. It's a medium budget film and I can't reveal more about it."

Meanwhile, Omung is happy that the Priyanka Chopra-starrer 'Mary Kom', a biopic on boxer and five-time World Champion M.C. Mary Kom, was among the women-centric films that did well in 2014.

He believes that 2014 changed the dynamics of women- centric films at the Bollywood box office.

"We all thought that post 'Kahaani', things would change, but that didn't happen.

"But this year, with films like 'Mardaani', 'Queen' and 'Mary Kom', things have certainly changed for women-centric films," he added.
