The makers of Poorna came up with a unique promotional strategy of unveiling the first look of the film by its real-life heroine at the Mount Kilimanjaro Summit.
A Palme d'Or winning filmmaker, Kiarostami, died in Paris. He had been receiving treatment for gastrointestinal cancer and had travelled to France for a series of operations.
"I had been working for Poorna from last 14 months. I did not step out of my cave in these months. I completely went into isolation. I am obsessed with the project and I haven't signed on anything else yet," said Rahul Bose
"Poorna couldn't be written more dramatically as fiction - how this little girl overcame every adversity to stand tall in the world is deeply moving and eye-poppingly unbelievable at the same," said Rahul
