Umar Krupp’s ‘Babani’ won four awards; Costume, Most Promising Actor, Golden Indigenous, Golden Supporting Actor (Drama).
According to Umar, ‘Babani’ is based on a true-life story on child marriage.
“Babani is a true story. It is about something that is happening in my family. It is about girl child marriage. My little cousin is being forced into marriage and I decided to do a movie to stop it”.
