KOZHIKODE: Bobby Chemmanur said that the fundraiser yatra held to save Abdul Raheem, who was sentenced to death in Saudi Arabia, will be made into a movie. Boche said in a press conference that he had spoken to director Blessy in this regard.

"Blessy gave a positive reply. I won't act in the film. I know who I want to play in my role. This is the story of Abdul Raheem. I have sat in the police station for a crime I did not commit. As I know its pain I intervened in Raheem's case. I aimed two things through this, one is the unity of the Malayalis. Unity of the Malayalis to save our brother is an example to the world. The second thing is that the profits from the film will be given to the poor through the Boche Fans Charitable Trust," said Bobby Chemmannur in a press conference.

Rs 34 crore rupees have been collected for the release of Abdul Raheem, who has been in jail in Saudi for 18 years. Bobby Chemmannur went on a fundraiser campaign from Thiruvananthapuram to Kasaragod. People from different walks of life came forward to contribute. From Thiruvananthapuram to Kasaragod, he entered public places like railway stations, bus stands and streets and sought help from the people.

In 2006, Raheem had the job of the caretaker of a 15-year-old differently-abled Arab boy. While driving, his hand accidentally hit the tube of the device attached to give food and water to the boy, resulting in his death. Following this, Raheem was sentenced to death.
