Malala Yousufzai

KARACHI: Malala Yousufzai, who deserves the accolade for bringing about a revolution not only in her own country but around the world, has proved that age has nothing to do with courage.

In order to pay tribute to this young Pakistani girl, Amjad Khan, an Indian film director is filming a biopic depicting her extraordinary story. It is reported that Fatima Sheikh, a 16-year-old Bangladeshi student has been selected for the coveted role of Malala in the film. However, Fatima’s parents are reportedly terrified with revenge attacks and have insisted her face should not be revealed till the film is shot halfway through.

The only picture that has reportedly been revealed shows the girl wearing a ‘naqab’, revealing her eyes only. The film will reportedly be named ‘Gul Makai’ in reference to Malala’s original blog and will be shot in Pakistan, Iran, India and London. The project is expected to begin in mid-July.
