Producer Mushtaq Nadiadwala is all set to make biopic on the country's youngest kickboxing World Champion, Tajamul Islam. The eight year old had scripted history at the World Kickboxing Championship in Italy in November last year. The producer has acquired sole rights of her inspirational story.
When asked the producer about it, he says, "The talks are on since a couple of months. The family trusts our vision and given our family's reputation in filmmaking, they feel their story is safe in our hands. We will appoint a writer to start developing the script soon." The script of the prospective film on her life is a work in progress under the banner MAN Films.
"This movie will inspire the youth who wish to aspire for excellence, but are bound and constrained by their circumstances. Specifically, it will aim to break gender stereotyping and bring to light the greatness that girls are destined for," he added.
Tajamul, one of five siblings born to Ghulam Mohammad Lone - a driver in Bandipora district of Kashmir -- is currently preparing for the upcoming World Championship to be held in Argentina.
"It is a moment of tremendous pride for me as a father. It brings back memories of all those times when we were in states of constant struggle to reach where we are today. I am going to provide my full co-operation with whatever is required of me," says Tajamul's father.
When asked further what larger purpose will the narration of Tajamul's story will have for Kashmiris, the producer says, "People will have a much larger appreciation for the lives and the talent that resides in Kashmir and opportunities will further open up leading to the establishment of a better infrastructure and provision of state of the art facilities for them."
Mushtaq is brother of producer Firoz Nadiadwala and cousin of filmmaker Sajid Nadiadwala.
