First Look of Malala Yousafzai’s Biopic ‘Gul Makai’
The first motion poster of Gul Makai, a biopic on Nobel peace prize winner Malala Yousafzai, the courageous Pakistani activist who defied Taliban, was unveiled Tuesday.
The poster depicts a young girl holding open a book while an explosion takes place on the book. The name of the biopic, Gul Makai, is the name Malala used while writing blogs for BBC Urdu during the rule of the Taliban.
“This is about those times when the Taliban was destroying Pakistan and Afghanistan in the name of Jihad and religion. When from a very small village in Pakistan, a voice arose,” the deep voice of Kabir Bedi echoes in the background.
Directed by Amjad Khan, the film stars Reem Shaikh as Malala along with Divya Dutta and Atul Kulkarni. The moving poster brings forth Malala’s fight for education and peace in a Pakistan plagued by several terrorist groups.
The poster reads, “One child, one teacher, one book and one pen can change the world.” The biopic will capture Malala’s journey from Pakistan’s Swat Valley to her efforts in getting the children of Pakistan to school. Her efforts got her worldwide recognition and admiration. Shaikh, who will play the global icon, has been previously seen in TV operas like Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai and Na Bole Tum Na Maine Kuch Kaha. She was also seen in the Amitabh Bachchan-Farhan Akhtar-starrer Wazir.
At the age of 17, Malala became the youngest person to win the Nobel Peace Prize after surviving an assassination attempt by the Taliban in 2012.
Currently a student at the Oxford University, she is also a founder of the Malala Fund, a non-profit organisation and the co-author I am Malala, an international bestseller. She has continued to speak out on the importance of education, especially in females.Disclaimer:We do not allow users to post content which is copyright and We take strict actions against the users who post infringement content on our website.Although we do not host any content, users post embed videos from youtube, facebook, Dailymotion and Vimeo and are moderated before posting but we still take strict action against the copyright videos posted.If you are an official representative of any company whose videos are posted illegally on our website or you think some video infringe the copyright then you can simply send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
