Malala loves Polite Society and so do we! Last night was the UK premiere where cast, crew and some of our faves walked the green carpet.
A merry mash up of sisterly affection, parental disappointment and bold action, @politesocietymovie follows martial artist-in-training Ria Khan who believes she must save her older sister Lena from her impending marriage. After enlisting the help of her friends, Ria attempts to pull off the most ambitious of all wedding heists in the name of independence and sisterhood 💥
Last night acclaimed writer & director Nida Manzoor joined cast Priya Kansara,Seraphina Beh, Shona Babayemi, Shobu Kapoor, Jeff Mirza, Nimra Bucha, Akshay Khanna and more to celebrate the release of the film.
Special guest Malala posted on Instagram afterwards saying “I adored @politesocietymovie, such a clever and captivating film about the lengths sisters will go to protect each other and support their dreams. @priyakansara and @rituarya delivered such dynamite performances and I loved watching the whole cast perform all the martial arts and stunts. It’s so wonderful to see Nida Manzoor continue to share positive and complex portrayals of South Asian Muslim women.”
Polite Society is out in UK cinemas on 28th April - be sure to catch it! 🍿 @universalpicturesuk @focusfeatures @workingtitlefilms
