Leading streaming platform Netflix is going to release a documentary film titled Salam based on Pakistan’s first and only Nobel Prize Winner Dr Abdus Salam.

The documentary has had multiple screenings at various film festivals and now would soon be releasing on October 1 for viewers across the globe to watch.

The trailer of this documentary is based on real footage where Salam can be seen receiving the Noble Prize. He can be seen posing alongside Gustav of Sweden in 1979 and meeting the Pope.

In 2018, Salam won Best Documentary Feature in the South Asian Film Festival of Montreal.

However, in Pakistan, despite his huge contributions to the field of Physics and bagging a Noble Prize, Salam has always been a controversial figure. Many call his achievements ordinary and maintains that he is being given unfair hype.

The film is directed by Brooklyn-based film director, Anand Kamalakar and produced under the banner of Kailoola Productions.

Well, how excited are you to watch the documentary on a bigger platform? Let us know…
