Hyder Kazmi, the renowned actor-producer, has produced a heart touching & soul-stirring movie named JIHAD and ironically at a time when every Indian citizen simply hates even the word Jihad itself. JIHAD is not just a film but a passionate pursuit close to the heart of Hyder Kazmi, since he really wanted to make an out of the box film which would pull the audience’s heartstrings. Not only this, his desire to make such a film like JIHAD would not only prove to be a message oriented movie for today’s youth but would also serve as a yardstick and lighthouse for the youngsters to choose a path for protecting our motherland India and not against it. Hyder Kazmi had visited the birthplace of Lord Rama, Ayodhya and he launched the poster of his movie in Ayodhya on 6th December 2017.The purpose of launching it in Ayodhya was to give a message to the nation that Humanity rules supreme and the Hindus and Muslims should live in harmony just like they do in Ayodhya.
The Babri Masjid demolition completed 25 years on 6th December 2017 and on this occasion, Hyder Kazmi had said, ” The Ram Temple can be made in Ayodhya as it is Lord Shri Ram’s birth place and the Masjid can be made in Lucknow or somewhere else near Ayodhya.” Being a Muslim, Hyder has given an amicable solution to the Ayodhya dispute and believes that Hindus and Muslims in India living harmoniously have already set a benchmark for so many generations. This visionary message by Hyder at the promotion of Jihad movie in Ayodhya speaks volumes about this noble soul and the underlying message he wants to communicate through the medium of Jihad. He has made JIHAD based on such an interesting & topical theme that whenever & wherever JIHAD has been screened in the Global Film Festival circuit, the festival’s official Jury Members have not hesitated even for an iota of a second in bestowing JIHAD with the “Best Film Of The Year” award.In fact, JIHAD has bagged awards & accolades galore. So it will not be out of place to make a mention of a few well-deserved nuggets at this juncture. JIHAD has bagged the following Winner awards: Toronto International Nollywood Film Festival(Best Actor), DadaSahebPhalke Film Foundation Award(Best Actor),Malta International Film Festival (Best Actress), Maverick Movie Award, Los Angeles Film Festival, Cinema London (Best Actress), DadaSaheb Phalke Golden Camera Award(Best Film), Calcutta International Cult Film Festival (Best Actor, Best Film), NRI Achievers Award (Best Debutant Actress), National Human Rights & Social Justice Commission (Best Film, Best Director, Best Actor, Best Actress) Film Festivals.

Officially Selected at Creation International film Festival,Canada, The CK Long Island NewYork, Pembroke Taparelli Arts Los Angeles, Royal Starr Michigan, HongKong National, Boston Galactic Stars, San Francisco, Aab International Punjab, KaPow Intergalactic Los Angeles etc.
Last but not the least Hyder Kazmi seems ecstatic about JIHAD as his long-cherished dream seems to have reached its ultimate pinnacle of fulfillment .Meanwhile for these Hyder Kazmi gives the entire credit to the legendary actors, our very own “Bharat” of Hindi films, Shri Manoj Kumar, Tragedy King Shri Dilip Kumar. A point to be noted here is that it was Manoj Kumar who was entirely responsible for bringing Hyder Kazmi to Mumbai then Bombay and gave him a break in his small screen serial. In fact, Hyder Kazmi had one more dream and that was to act in a film with Dilip Kumar. However, Hyder Kazmi had succeeded in getting the negative cutting of his released film Bobby, not to be confused with the Late Raj Kapoor’s film Bobby, at the hands of Dilip Kumar.
In the last one decade Hyder Kazmi has produced & acted in scores of films but the creative satisfaction which Hyder Kazmi experienced in producing & acting in JIHAAD is unbelievable, unthinkable & even unparalleled. In fact, Hyder Kazmi is really at a loss for words to describe his phenomenal feelings. Bollywood will definitely get a serious & accomplished actor in the form of Hyder Kazmi after witnessing his effortless albeit flawless act in JIHAD a la Naseeruddin Shah,Irrfan Khan, Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Manoj Bajpai et al.
The most ardent desire of Hyder Kazmi is that the members of the 4th estate should view JIHAD very carefully albeit very interestingly & very sensitively too. As without the proper & the adequate support of the media nothing is possible. Hence Hyder Kazmi wants the media should see the film first and express their unbiased verdict for JIHAD which is all set to release in 2018. JIHAD has been directed by Rakesh Parmar, and it stars the bold & the beautiful Alfeeya.
