Malala rose to prominence with a blog for the BBC's Urdu service by describing her life in Swat under the Taliban and later an attempt on her life by the Taliban.
Meanwhile, the former British Prime Minister and current U.N. Special Envoy for Global Education Gordon Brown, has launched a United Nations petition in Malala's name, using the slogan "I am Malala" and demanding that all children worldwide be in school by the end of 2015.
Indian director Amjad Khan has also expressed his desire to make a biographical film based on Malala’s activism and courage for the cause of girls' education and is looking for a child actor who will portray her.
