What about Malala’s mother?

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - COVER STORY -

“Her mom is a very tra­di­tional Pak­istani­woman.It’s seenas im­mod­est to be on cam­era. We get asked a lot why is she not on cam­era, why is she in the back­ground? And that was a choice on her part. To­wards the end I started to show her scenes from the movie and she be­came more in­ter­ested.

“At first there were early pic­tures of[ Mal ala’ s] life she was re­luc­tant to use through a sense of pro­pri­ety. But as you get to­know them, your ea lise she’ s both par­ents. She gets her pas­sion from her fa­ther. But she’s tough as nails from her mother.”
