Zee News to air documentary on Mohammad Ali Jinnah

All those who want to delve deeper into the life of Mohammad Ali Jinnah will get a chance to get acquainted with him on Zee News. The channel will be telecasting this first ever documentary on the founder of Pakistan on August 14 at 8 pm.

The one-hour film, which will explore the various facets of Jinnah, has been produced by Zee News in collaboration with News Watch Asia.

The film has been conceived and directed by Raju Santhanam, former Editor of ‘Statesman’ and Anmol Saxena, the Chief of Bureau of the soon-to-be launched English international channel, Al Jazeera International.

Commenting on the documentary, Saxena said, “The film will explore the political life and the different personalities of Jinnah. It is for the audiences, who are not aware of Jinnah, we intend to inform them about him. It is for the audiences, who know about Jinnah but have a set mindset, so it will be thought provoking for them. The film will present new facts to history students.”

The film has been anchored by actor Irrfan Khan, while renowned advertising and theatre personality Alyque Padamsee has lent his voice for Jinnah.

Laxmi Goel, Director, Newsgroup, Zee Telefilms Ltd, said “The documentary – ‘Jinnah versus Jinnah’ – is another path breaking effort of Zee News to look at important events through the eyes of dispassionate observers.”

He further said, “The people of India want to know about Jinnah, so it is our responsibility to put forth the various facets of his life, unravel who he was, his intentions and what tricks he employed in order to achieve power.”

The documentary had entailed a comprehensive research, which involved the views of historians from India, Pakistan and Britain, informed Saxena.
