‘Gul Makai’: Bollywood to make biopic on Malala Yousafzai


The shooting of upcoming biopic Gul Makai – based on the life of teenager Pakistani activist and Nobel Peace Prize winner Malala Yousafzai – will resume from September, says the film’s producer Anand Kumar.

Part of the film has already been shot in Bhuj and Mumbai in 2016. Later, the cast and crew deferred the shoot of the film in Kashmir due to strained situations.

Kumar is happy with the first edits and is excited to resume the shoot of the film. He credits director Amjad Khan for capturing great visuals and bringing out the core reality to the silver screen.

“The biopic is 50 per cent finished and I am super curious to bring it to the silver screen soon. We have already shot the war sequences and other important schedules. Now we will be shooting with our ‘Malala’ in Kashmir,” Anand said in a statement.

The crew will start the shoot amid tight security.

They have already shot the war scenes in extreme locations as it demonstrates the untouched subjects which had a major effect on Malala’s life.

The makers have also planned to introduce the leading lady, who will be seen essaying the role of Malala. The introduction will take place at an event on August 23.

The film will demonstrate distinctive shades and reality of the extreme circumstances which Malala experienced while raising her voice for the girl education.
