MogulMowgli follows a British-Pakistani rapper, who on the cups of his first world tour, is struck down by an illness that threatens to derail his big break.
On the cusp of his first world tour, rapper Zed (Riz Ahmed) is struck by a serious autoimmune disease. He gets into an emotional crisis which forces him to deal with his past, his cultural heritage and his family.
Director Bassam Tariq and rapper, actor and activist Riz Ahmed co-wrote the screenplay for this gripping feature film debut. Both grew up in the West as part of a minority community. They both knew what it was like to dream of artistic endeavour, while also being conscious of your family history, the outlook of some of your parents, cousins, and siblings, being elsewhere. “We wanted to tell a story about the tension that exists between pursuing your own ambitions and connecting to the people that matter – yourself, your family, your loved ones.”
