Mahesh Bhatt, in an endeavour to find common ground between India and Pakistan, is all set to produce and present a play, Milne Do.
Mahesh Bhatt, in an endeavour to find common ground between India and Pakistan, is all set to produce and present a play, Milne Do.
A collaborative effort of theatre actors from the two countries, the play — an intense love story between two culturally crossed individuals during times of abject hatred — is aimed at promoting the core message of 'Aman ki asha'.
Actor Imran Zahid will be playing the lead along with an actress from Pakistan, who is yet to be finalized. Incidentally, Imran is also playing the lead in the theatre adaptation of Bhatt's Arth.
Two bands — one each from India and Pakistan — will also perform live when the play tours cities like Kolkata, Delhi, Mumbai, Karachi, Islamabad and Lahore to begin with. Later, it will also travel to other cities of the two countries. While Pakistani band Laal has been confirmed, its Indian counterpart is yet to be finalized. Sources told us that Indian Ocean has been approached for the slot.
"This play is still in conceptualization stages. A part of the story will be rehearsed in India and the other in Pakistan. However, we will stage the play together on stage," said Imran Zahid.
Mahesh Bhatt said, "I have always maintained that a movie or a play can be a greater vehicle of peace than all the lectures we give. Any message, if communicated through storytelling, touches a chord. We are also trying to do the same. This play will be an emotional transaction between industries on both sides."
This will be Mahesh Bhatt's fourth play after The Last Salute, Trial of Errors and Arth.
