The ever-enterprising Mahesh Bhatt is about to take the initiative to resume Indo-Pak cultural dialogue with a stage adaptation of Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet which will convert the original play into an Indo-Pak love story.
Sources say the play entitled Milne Do will feature artistes and musicians from both sides of the border. Delhi-based theatre actor Imran Zahid who will play Bhatt’s Romeo says, “Bhatt Saab has already approached Ali Zafar to write a theme song for the play. We are now in the process of approaching some more Pakistanis singers and composers.”
The play will feature artistes from India and Pakistan.
Says Mahesh Bhatt, “It will address itself to the theme of us, instead of them.”
