The director of the film, Mira Nair, has already asked for help to get money for her cancer treatment in 2016 and that the little girl could be transferred to India.

Gloria, her character, was a friend of the protagonist, played by Madina Nalwanga, who explains the rules of chess.

“The Queen of Katwe” featured the performance of Kenyan Lupita Nyong’o as the mother of the protagonist and Briton David Oyelowo as a chess teacher. .
