15-year-old Insia loves singing and she longs to share her passion with the world. But the shadow of her abusive father looms large as she lives in fearful silence with her mother and younger brother. When her mother brings home a laptop, Insia sees a window of opportunity to break out of oppression. With the help of YouTube, she dons a niqab, strums a chord and becomes the Secret Superstar.
Secret Superstar sees the reunion of Bollywood star Aamir Khan and young actress Zaira Wasim, who starred in Khan’s superhit Dangal. Inspired by real life everyday heroes, director Advait Chandan has woven a stirringly feminist film about the courage it takes to smash boundaries and reach far-away dreams. It is also a heartwarming ode to the quiet heroism of motherhood.
