Rahul Bose’s much ambitious venture Poorna, a biopic on a 13 year old girl by the same name, is all set to reveal its first look. Considering that the film is about a young girl’s journey of climbing Mount Everest, the makers have decided that Poorna herself will unveil the trailer of the film at the Mount Kilimanjaro Summit on India’s Independence Day.
Poorna is now gearing up for her next expedition, to Africa’s Mount Kilimanjaro with 17 other girls, where she will unveil the film’s first look at the mountain summit on India’s Independence Day. “We gave her two water-proof posters to carry along. She begins her ascent on August 10 and will unfurl the longest National Flag ever on August 15 at the summit,” says an excited Rahul who is busy with the film’s post-production at the moment. Malavanth Poorna created a world record at the age of 13 as she became the youngest girl to scale Mount Everest on May 25, 2014, followed by a 17 year old co-student Sadhanapalli Anand, both of whom were students of Andhra Pradesh Social Welfare Residential Schools and were mentored by Dr RS Praveen Kumar. In the film Poorna, the protagonist is played by Aditi Inamdar, while the role of the mentor is played by Rahul Bose himself.
“We are three weeks away from receiving the first copy of the film so I can’t think of going anywhere. Also, I would have had to undergo training if I wanted to make the climb,” reasons Rahul who is looking at a November release. The promotions of Poorna will kick starts two months in advance with a country-wide campaign where besides the trailer Rahul will also showcase actual footage, giving audiences a first-hand experience of the climb.
