Inspired by Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s ‘Manjhi: The Mountain Man’ poor damsel makes it to IAS! Nawazuddin says he feel “privileged”

“It feels great that my film #ManjhiTheMountainMan have motivated the girl Seerat to clear the #UPSC Exam after she had given up on it. I feel privileged to be doing such inspiring films,” says Nawazuddin Siddiqui.


Seerat Fatima of Allahabad, Uttar Pradesh, was sulking over her failure to clear the UPSC exams in her first attempt, but the thespian’s movie greatly inspired her and she decided to take another attempt.  The result was quite astounding: the diva worked hard and passed it with flying colors.


Belonging to economically lower strata, where her father remains the sole bread-earner, she faced great difficulty in continuing her education. Unable to clear the UPSC exams in her first attempt she was sucked into the state of depression and even lost faith in her potentials. However, after she watched Nawazuddin’s ‘Manjhi The Mountain Man’, she decided to take the plunge again and with fresh vigor. The result: She cleared it this time around.
