About The Authors
Syed Nadim Rizvi
Executive Producer and Screen Writer
Syed Nadim Rizvi comes from a very well educated and influential family. His father, Ali Abid Shevan Rizvi, was a highly successful producer, director and writer in the film industries of India and Pakistan. Nadim’s mother, Nabila Khanam, was a very successful business woman and was instrumental in creating one of the biggest textile export houses of Pakistan. This achievement by a Muslim woman in a conservative society is still unmatched in the country’s history.
Nadim received his Bachelors of Science from Adamjee Science College and his Master of Science from the University of Karachi. Afterwards, Nadim joined the family business where he played a pivotal role in expanding the company to new horizons and success.
Nadim has devoted his life towards promoting peace and harmony in the world. He is concerned with the current tensions and misunderstandings amongst the followers of the Abrahamic traditions (Judaism, Christianity and Islam). It is for this reason he has studied the Holy Quran thoroughly with English and Urdu translation. He wanted to investigate for himself the true meaning of the Holy Scripture and not be influenced by others, particularly those who negatively distort the image of Islam. This study has resulted in a book titled, “The Unquranic Islam”, which he intends to publish in the near future.
The tragic events of 9/11 have led Nadim to develop a motion picture concept titled “Jesus to Jesus”. The idea is to present on-screen, for the first time ever, the life of Jesus Christ and his Second Coming from the Islamic perspective. Nadim wishes to tell the world that Jesus is not only important to Christians but is also a highly respected and loved messenger of Islam, which has nearly 2 billion followers.
With this film, Nadim hopes to bridge the gap between the Abrahamic Faiths. Although, the project is of gigantic magnitude in terms of finances, he still envisions the task to be completed in the very near future with the help of like-minded investors, philanthropists, businessmen and the prayers of well wishers.
Nadim is the president of Citrine Productions, LLC.
