Malavath Poorna was just a usual name until May 25, 2014, when the girl hailing from a small village of Telangana climbed the Mount Everest creating history for being the youngest girl in the world to do so. The 13-year-old pitched India’s flag at 6 A.M. and made the country proud.
Rahul Bose will be essaying the role of Poorna’s father in the film – who according to Rahul is an inspiration to about 1000 kids in tribal schools and who Poorna calls her god.
He is donning the director’s hat almost after 15 years. Last film that he had helmed was Everybody Says I’m Fine, which released in 2002.
Film’s trailer will be released today on 5 pm.

Describing the film earlier, Rahul Bose said that the story is quite emotional. “It has no jhalak of Bollywood, yet makes you cry. That’s because Poorna is one of the most remarkable people I’ve met… Focussed, disciplined, thoughtful yet fun-loving. She has Malala’s strength, determination, optimism and desire to change society by joining the civil services. Her story needs to be told to the world,” he told Times of India.
The girl playing the titular role – Aditi Inamdar—hails also hails from Telangana. She was reportedly chosen among 109 other girls who auditioned for the flick. The film was shot in Poorna’s village for 11 days.
