Popular child actress Reem Sheikh, who has been seen in quite a few TV serials (Na Bole Tum Na Maine Kuch Kaha, Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai) is all set to play Noble Prize winner Malala Yousafzai in a film called Gul Makai, which is a biopic of the Pakistani activist.
The film will chronicle the journey of Malala in Swat Valley, Pakistan, to being the youngest Noble Peace Prize winner who stood up against terrorism.
According to reports, when director Amjad Khan was searching for a girl who could play Malala Yousafzai in Gul Makai, Reem caught his eye with her innocent face and spontaneous acting skills.
Reem has gone through a complete training process to correct her diction, her mannerisms and body language to portray the Pakistani activist on screen.
Malala stood against their atrocities, and started writing for BBC Urdu with the pseudonym Gul Makai, which attracted a lot of attention.
