Prawaal Raman is set to make history. His next film is based on the life of Balochistan activist Naela Quadri Baloch, which is under pre-production. The film is written and directed by Raman, and is produced by Raman and Shantanu Yadav along with an international studio. Interestingly, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had incurred criticism from Pakistan after he spoke of the atrocities committed by the Pakistani establishment in the troubled region.

Baloch  is a renownd activist, writer and poet and delivers lectures on human rights.She has been actively fighting for the freedom of Balochistan from Pakistan. She is currently in exile. When asked about the project, Yadav  said, “It’s an inspirational tale of the journey of an extraordinary woman And Raman adds, “It’s a rebellious film about peace and freedom.” Inspector General of Maharashtra Police, Brijesh Singh, the acclaimed author of the book Quantam Siege is also co-writing a book on Baloch along with Raman. The cast of the biopic will be finalised soon.

At a time, when Indo-Pak relations are facing challenges, a film on an activist who is against the annexation of Balochistan with Pakistan to be made by an Indian filmmaker may not be acceptable, so far as our neighbours are concerned.
