Actor Christopher Lee called it the most important film he’d ever made.

The most important film I made, in terms of its subject and the great responsibility I had as an actor was a film I did about the founder of Pakistan, called Jinnah.

A Masterpiece

The cinematic masterpiece received international acclaim with awards such as the World Film Award in Jakarta, Gold Award at Worldfest Flagstaff International Film Festival, Golden Dhow Award at Zanzibar International Film Festival and the Golden Pyramid Award at the Cairo International Film Festival.

Jinnah was screened at the British Film Institute (BFI) along with Dehlavi’s other projects, back in 2018.

Initially, the film was made in English but was later dubbed in Urdu for Pakistani audiences.

Back in 2015, there was news that Jinnah would be re-released in cinemas all across Pakistan. The decision was supposed to be in time for Independence Day.
