United Nations is all set to hold a special screening of the biopic of the youngest Nobel Prize Laureate Malala Yousafzai. According to Indian media, the screening, which will take place in London on January 25, will see 450 dignitaries from around the world in attendance including Members of the Indian, Pakistani and British High Commission as well as members of the UN and IIMSAM (Intergovernmental Institution for the use of Micro-algae Spirulina Against Malnutrition).

Gul Makai is however, an unofficial biopic of Malala Yousafzai directed by Amjad Khan and starring Reem Sheikh as Malala. The film’s screening in London will also be attended by Malala herself, along with her parents Ziauddin Yousafzai and Toor Pekai.

Speaking about getting the UN on board, director Amjad Khan shared, “I had to really push a lot as is usually the case. I even managed to get them to agree to us using the UN and IIMSAM logos in the mm which is a privilege. This is the first time they have organised an event like this.”

“We are looking at an April date, after the exams,” Khan added further.

Another screening of the film is also being planned at UN in New York, by mid February, however, confirmation is still being awaited for this.
