The film, which will be a complete HD production, is the first-international documentary based on AMU. Khaishgi hopes that resourceful Aligarh Old Boys will contribute to the project and become its part.

“This university has given so much to people like you. Now this is the time to tell the world what AMU really means to you. This could be your token of gratitude to your alma mater.”

Destination Aligarh will be exhibited at international festivals and in those cities where AMU Old Boys are pursuing their careers. It promises to connect all Aligs to their beloved educational institution.
