The celebrations will be spread over the year and one of the proposed highlights of the celebrations will be a biopic on Sir Syed Ahmad Khan, which is proposed to be directed by noted film director Muzaffar Ali, also an alumnus of AMU.

AMU Vice Chancellor Lt Gen (retd) Zameer Uddin Shah announced the setting up of a five-member committee to chalk out programmes to highlight the role of Sir Syed not only in the establishment of the AMU, but also in promoting cause of modern education all over the country.

AMU spokesperson Rahat Abrar said that a proposal for producing the biopic was discussed between Ali and AMU officials last week when he was in the varsity to attend a meeting of the university court.

Sir Syed was born in 1817 in Delhi. He is remembered today not only as the founder of AMU but more so for his attempts to create the first modernist educational movement.
