The Reluctant Fundamentalist

The Reluctant Fundamentalists
In 2010, as student demonstrations rage in Lahore, a young Pakistani professor Changez Khan is interviewed by American journalist Bobby Lincoln. Princeton-educated Changez tells Lincoln of his past as a brilliant business analyst on Wall Street. He talks of the glittering future that lay before him, his mentor, Jim Cross, and the beautiful and sophisticated Erica, with whom he was set to share that future.

Meet the director and the actors of this film:


Mira Nair:
While finishing 'The Namesake', in New York in 2007, Nair read the manuscript of Hamid's unpublished novel, 'The Reluctant Fundamentalist'. She found it immensely readable and was thrilled to have found a springboard from which to enter the worlds of both modern-day Lahore and New York. Through her own Mirabai Films and Pilcher's New York-based Cine Mosaic, the two optioned the film rights to the novel.

Riz Ahmed as Changez:  Since graduating from Oxford University in 2004 and the Central School of Speech and Drama in 2005, Riz Ahmed has worked consistently in film, theater and television. He landed his first feature, the controversial and gripping docu-drama: The Road to Guantanamo, directed by Michael Winterbottom and Mat Whitecross, while he was at drama school.

Kate Hudson as Erica
: Golden Globe Award winner and Academy Award nominee Kate Hudson made her studio film debut in 200 Cigarettes, co-starring Ben Affleck, Courtney Love, Christina Ricci, Jay Mohr, Dave Chappelle, Martha Plimpton and Paul Rudd. However, it was her career-making performance in Cameron Crowe's Almost Famous that won the hearts of critics and moviegoers
around the world.

Liev Schreiber as Bobby Lincoln: Heralded as "the finest American theater actor of his generation" by the New York Times, Liev Schreiber's repertoire of resonant, humanistic and oftentimes gritty portrayals have garnered him praise in film, theater and television.



Om Puri as Abu
: Om Puri is one of India's most celebrated actors. He won his first Indian National Film Award for his performance in Ardh Satya. Since then, he has starred in both Hindi-language and
international projects like East is East, City of Joy and most recently Charlie Wilson's War
opposite Tom Hanks and Julia Roberts.

Shabana Azmi as Ammi: Shabana Azmi is widely known as one of India's most skilled actresses, having won the National Film Award a record five times. She has starred in over 120 Hindi-language films, including Shyam Benegals's Ankur, Satyajit Ray's Shatranj Ke Khilade, Deepa Mehta's Fire and Goutam
Ghose's Paar.
