The first teaser of upcoming Bollywood movie ‘Gul Makai’, a biopic based on Nobel Peace Prize winner Malala Yousafzai, has been revealed.
The teaser was released on the 21st birthday of Malala Yousufzai, the day which is celebrated as Malala Day around the globe.
The teaser starts with a deep voice of Kabir Bedi which echoes:
“When God said Jihaad, he meant the spirit of fighting all that is dark and benevolent. But the need and greed of some human beings changed that meaning into something else. 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.”
Then they describe the reason why Malala’s mother chose this unique name for her!

The official synopsis of Gul Makai reads:
“When Taliban took over heavenly Swat, Pakistan, and turned their lives into hell. They destroyed schools and terrorized people with multiple conservative rules. And then an 11 years old girl stood up and started blogging in BBC Urdu, explaining their pain and struggle under Taliban rule and fearlessly make the world aware about the truth of terrorism suffocating their country slowly. She used Gul Makai as her pen name.”
