'Victoria and Abdul' Was Made Keeping Donald Trump In Mind: Stephen Frears
A recent report revealed that director Stephen Frears made a witty statement about his recently-released film 'Victoria and Abdul'. He said he had made the film keeping U.S. President Donald Trump in his mind. Later he even clarified that he had said it deliberately.
The 76-year-old filmmaker at the movie's gala premiere at the Venice Film Festival said, “I thought to myself: 'What film would Donald Trump most like to see?' It's quite irreverent”. The director also indicated that things are getting worse as the current monarch Queen Elizabeth II not being able to speak Urdu is a bad sign, which explains the fact.
The film narrates an unusual relationship between Abdul (Ali Fazal), who was an Indian clerk, and the then Queen Victoria. According to the tale, the Abdul became her friend and a teacher towards the end of her life. The film which features Judi Dench and Ali Fazal got released on September 3 this year.
