Baba Azmi Directs A Film

Shabana Azmi’s  extremely  shy and  gifted cinematographer brother  Baba Azmi is directing  a film.

 Entitled Me Raqsam(I Dance) the  film is being shot currently at Mijwan , Shabana and Baba’s father the eminent  poet Kaifi Azmi’s native village.

Speaking  from Mijwan the proud and happy sister Shabana says, “I’m in Mijwan with my sister-in-law Tanve(Baba’s husband) .The  District Magistrate of  Azamgarh gave the muhurat clap for Baba’s feature film Mee Raqsam ( I Dance) . It’s being shot in a start to finish schedule in Mijwan with 14 yr old resident of Mijwan Aditi Sharma playing the protagonist. Danish Husain plays her father. I is the  story of a humble tailor who fights all odds to fulfil his daughter’s dream to become a dancer. Once Abba (father Kaifi Azmi) had asked Baba in passing if a film could be shot in Mijwan. In Kaifi’s centenary year Baba pays the most fitting tribute to his father’s desire.”

 Concludes  Shabana, “I’ve always been  proud of  supportive of  my brother. He is makinga film that our father would have been proud of.”
