Rahul Bose’s upcoming film, “Poorna”, is capturing everyone’s attention for its inspiring content.
The director recently hosted a special screening of the film for celebrities and their reactions were priceless. They loved the film and were very motivated by the content and performances.
Vidya Balan shares, “”Poorna” is one of the best films I have seen in a long time. I cried and was inspired at the same time! Great performances!”
Veteran actress Shabana Azmi was very much touched by the film and says, “”Poorna” moves you, inspires you, makes you cry, and finally, makes you proud of this little girl’s achievement. I would gladly see it a second time!”
Rajkummar Rao feels inspired and shares, “”Poorna” is a triumph of human endurance, aspirations and courage. A little girl from an unknown village in India had conquered the impossible. A heart-warming biopic of an ordinary 13-year-old girl who made it to the top of Everest and made history.”
Indian skipper Virat Kohli says, “I just want to congratulate Rahul and the team first for putting together such a special film. We all were very moved by it and so much to learn from the film as well. The way it’s been put, the innocence of Poorna herself and her colleague Anand to have climbed Everest was something which was amazing to see. Teaches us a lot of things that…if we believe in something, it can be achieved and there has to be a bigger reason behind it. I certainly would tell everyone to watch it and learn from it, not just watch it. And urge the girls of this country to move forward and do special things which doesn’t quite happen very often and it is something which is, you know, very close to me as well. And I also would like to learn a lot from this film, already have. So, thank you so much for this experience again and I wish you guys all the best.”
National cricket coach Anil Kumble also shared his thoughts on the film, “It’s really an inspirational story, well brought out by Rahul. Congratulations Rahul and your team for a wonderful…wonderfully documented story. Congratulations Poorna for being the first…for being the youngest girl to reach Mt. Everest. I think for every Poorna there is a Praveen Kumar behind and the story of Praveen Kumar and Poorna and the support that has come through in this movie is being brilliantly brought out by Rahul. Congratulations and I’m sure lot of people who will watch this will get inspired. Thank you so much for having us.”
“Poorna” is a biopic based on Poorna Malavath, a girl from Telangana who became the youngest girl to have reached the summit of Everest on May 25, 2014. The movie showcases her journey and her determination to achieve her dreams against all odds.
