Gul Makai director says Didn’t take permission from Malala for biopic movie
Bollywood film director Amjad Khan said In an interview, “No, I haven’t. But I think she and her family know that an Indian film director is making a film about her life. But yes, I wish to show her the film once it is releasing.”
He added that making a biopic on a person whose life story is out in the people
While speaking about the research that went into making the film, Khan said he went through research for two years along with a Pakistani author before he finalised the script as he was quite extra cautious about everything.
“I have shown things exactly the way they happened, and yet it is not a documentary but a good watch. I had to find the balance as I had to be factually correct and at the same time entertain,” he said.
However, he added he has decided to donate the first day worldwide theatrical collection of the film to Malala Fund to support the cause of children education.
The film, featuring Reema Shaikh in the key role, also features Divya Dutta and late Om Puri in a pivotal role. It will be released the end of this year.
