The movie is now scheduled to be released on 31st January 2020. The film stars Reem Shaikh in the role of Malala and also stars the late Om Puri. The movie will follow the struggle and journey of Malala Yousufazai during the time the Taliban gunmen seized the Swat Valley and her fight to get the right to complete education.
