Senior Bollywood actors like Danny, Naseeruddin Shah, Om Puri, KK Menon and Seema Biswas are playing strong roles in this movie.

Shahbaz Bajwa plays the role of an Afghani extremist in the film.

“My film would be a tribute to this teenage education activist. Malala has proved that age is no bar when it comes to courage and fighting the evils,” Amjad Khan said.

About his Kanpur plans, he adds, “We would be shooting for at least 15 days in Kanpur and most probably our shoot will start from May 22 or 24. I will be shortly coming to the city to meet the administration to seek due permissions for the shooting.”

In an interview earlier, Khan had said they would guard the identity of the girl playing Malala for the sake of her security, and Khan persists with that explanation even now.

“At the moment we cannot disclose who would be playing Malala’s role.” Khan informed.

The filmmaker has also decided to donate the first day collections of the film to Malala’s school in Swat district.
