Renowned organization, UNICEF is supporting the first-time director Faruk Kabir’s film Allah Ke Banday because of its issue.

Buzz is that the Film has actual footage from the archives of UNICEF that show the issues about children in difficult times. The film is basically based on issues of juvenile crimes and other issues about children in difficult times. Faruk says,

“UNICEF is supporting the film because it talks about the plight of children affected by crime and war. They were generous enough to let us use footage from their archives. They morally supported the idea of the film and immensely liked the subject.”

“They have an archive dating back over 50 years and talks about children facing difficult circumstances. Not just because of war but also issues like child labour, malnutrition, etc. I have used clippings from their documentaries and interviews and used it in my music video which I have shot with Kailash Kher.”

Allah Ke Banday releases on October 22 and Faruk is counting the days to the release,

“I am really excited because I’ve put my heart and soul in this film.”
