A Muslim filmmaker known for his work on blockbuster films including “Star Wars” and Oscar-winner “The Favourite” is approaching the climax of a two-year project aimed at countering myths that lead to extremism and Islamophobia in the UK.

Rizwan Wadan made a name for himself as one of the few Muslims to rise to the top of the global film industry, and on Wednesday he will release a film aimed at countering the myths that promote Islamophobia while deterring Muslims from pursuing a path that leads to extremism.
