Mohammed Ali Shah –
An International TEDx speaker for 16 times, this ex-army lieutenant, an Actor, storyteller, motivational speaker, and Theatre Artist – he has all in his kitty. Even though coming from an army-served family with a close family connection with renowned actor Naseeruddin Shah, didn’t make his path easier. Ali always strived the hard way to get a name for himself, that stays long and echoes harder in the soul of the masses. From a REAL hero to REEL hero, and from Ali to Jasgit Singh the effort he has put in each outshines and takes him forward.

The film’s music was composed by Gourov-Roshin, Shaan, Ankit Tiwari and Siddharth Pandit while lyrics written by Prashant Ingole, Sunil Sirvaiya, Manoj Muntashir and Rev Shergill.
Mohammed Ali Shah says, ” I was a chain smoker but I gave up smoking at the drop of a hat as Sikh’s do not smoke. I grew my hair and beard for a couple of years and learnt to tie the 6 metres turban. Spending a month in the Golden Temple in Amritsar doing Seva was the best period as I learnt so many things. From completing the Shri Guru Granth Sahib Ji ( The English version) to rehearsing my lines and scenes obsessively I have gone beyond the ways.”
