Bollywood Is Making A Biopic On Malala Yousafzai, Because Pakistan Mein Tou Films Banti Nahin Hai

By Arslan Athar | 5 Jul, 2018

Malala Yousafzai, for some weird reason, is a controversial figure in Pakistan, and Pakistan alone. Her achievements are known to all as is her struggle. Her story would make a great blockbuster movie, which is why someone in Bollywood has decided to make a movie based on her life story.

The film is called ‘Gul Makai‘ and while news of the movie began circulating back in January, the poster for the film was recently released for all to see.

Malala Yousafzai has taken Pakistan and Pakistan’s story to the international stage. She has contributed in large part to the general improvement of Pakistan’s international image. Despite the opinions of a lot of people online, the movie and the concept should have been a Pakistani affair, however, the people across the border moved in more swiftly and now ‘Gul Makai’Ā is going to be the first ever biopic of Malala’s life.

Many Pakistanis have taken to Twitter to express their concern and disappointmentĀ 

Others just wanted someone else to take itĀ 

Because let’s be real, Pakistan may never make this film

Inhon ne point tou sahi maari haiĀ 

Pakistani and Muslim representation has always been an issue with Bollywood, hasn’t it?Ā 

TheĀ janaabĀ thing seems to be a recurring theme here

Some wondered why India is taking up the film, and some were quick to answer the questionĀ 

People smelled propagandaĀ 

Bollywood was declared unfit to do the movie

There were some voices of supportĀ 

But generally, people felt that this would not be good for Malala, considering her ‘image issues’ in PakistanĀ 

It’s not clear whether or not Malala has given her permission for this movie to be made, and it’s also not clear how much of the plot of the film is based entirely on Malala’s life and tribulations.

How do you feel about this entire situation? Let us know in the comments šŸ™‚
