Hamza Baba’s 83-year-old film script is feared to be ‘lost’

The 83-year-old ‘precious’ film script of Hamza Baba, the president-award-winning writer behind the first Pashto language film ‘Laila Majnanu’, is feared to be lost.

Sajjad Ali Shinwari, the grandson of Amir Hamza Khan Shinwari, says that the building of Radio Pakistan in Peshawar was also severely damaged during the violent protests that took place on May 9 after the arrest of PTI Chairman Imran Khan.

Sajjad Ali Shinwari says that along with other records in Radio Pakistan, ‘many plays and features of Baba Ghazal Amir Hamza Khan Shinwari have definitely been lost.’

In an exclusive conversation with Independent Urdu, Sajjad Ali Shinwari added that Hamza Baba had moved to the then Bombay in 1938.

“He (Hamza Baba) used to say that he got an opportunity to act in a silent film but he was not happy because he liked to play the hero in the film but he was cast as the villain.”

Sajjad Ali Shinwari tells that it was during this time that Hamza Baba met Rafiq Ghaznavi, who is considered a music teacher in India.

‘They both decided to make a film in Pashto and named it Laila Majnu. The script of this film was written in 1941 with dialogues, songs and story written by Hamza Baba himself.

“It was the first Pashto film made in Bombay and screened in Peshawar.”
