Guftagoo with muzaffar ali
Rajah Muzaffar Ali (Urdu: مظفر علی, Hindi: मुज़फ्फर अली, born 21 October 1944, Lucknow) is an Indian filmmaker, a fashion designer, a poet, an artist, a music-lover, a revivalist, and a social worker. He belongs to the Muslim Rajput royal house of Kotwara in India. He is not to be confused with the famous 16th century Persian artist of the Persian miniature.
Muzaffar Ali attended the La Martiniere college in Lucknow. His father was the Raja of Kotwara, an estate in the Gola Gokaran Nath Sub division of the Lakhimpur Kheri district in Uttar Pradesh, and his mother was from a noble clan settled in the neighbouring Sheikhupur, Badaun. Muzaffar Ali had a successful career as a filmmaker. His Vinod Khanna-Dimple Kapadia starrer Zooni is still unreleased.
