Indian poet, lyricist and screenwriter Javed Akhtar and his wife Shabana Azmi, the thriving film, television and theatre actress are coming to Dhaka.
Complemented with musical pieces from new age Indian ghazal maestro Jaswinder Singh, the celebrity couple will stage a special play titled “Kaifi Aur Main” on the evening of October 25, Wednesday, at Dhaka's Krishibid Complex Auditorium, Blues Communications, the organiser of the special event, has announced.
Tracing the life of renowned Urdu poet Kaifi Azmi, “Kaifi Aur Main” is not merely a stage play but a combination of recitations and anecdotal biography.
Blues Communications invited the public to envision a long mystic poem with a dash of romance, humour, grief while Shabana and Javed read and act out texts and poignant, funny tales from the poet's life. For a cherry on top, the whole play will be blended with ghazals by Jaswinder along with some amazing musical compositions developed with violins and tablas.
According to the organisers, Javed and Shabana will land in Dhaka on the day of the event while the technical team will arrive beforehand.
Tickets are available to witness the theatrical production that has been carried across various countries. The grand circle ticket costs Tk5,000 while the gallery tickets are available for Tk2,000.
