Here’s a fun fact, I love theatre! ❤ I believe that watching a play is much better than watching a movie in cinema. So whenever I get the chance, I NEVER let go of that opportunity. So my love for theatre made me go watch a play in Arts Council, in Karachi Pakistan on 26th August 2014 accompanied by one of my best friends- Samra, which was called “Main Adaakara Bannongi” (english translation: I will become an actress). I know its a little too late to post this up, but i hadn’t started blogging back then and posting the experience I had was irresistible. So here goes… 😀
The entire play revolved around two renowned Pakistani actors, Sania Saeed as Naila Anjum and Abdullah Farhatullah as Zaigham Rafiqi. It was a 90 minute play, and it certainly was a treat to watch Sania’s exceptional performance. The exuberance with which Sania played this character is truly commendable. The plot circled around a middle-class girl – Naila, who is very keen on becoming an actress so that she could lead a better life, and she is adamant to learn it from Zaigham, who suffers from intellectual-superiority complex, but also shares the same passion for acting as Naila does. However, as there is a significant difference between their social classes, thats what makes the entire play so funny.
It was truly worth watching, as Samra (my bff) and I couldn’t stop laughing, and even after the play ended, remembering all the fun bits left us smiling for the rest of the night. I take pride in saying that Pakistan is extremely talented, be it in any field and the play definitely proved it! 🙂 Here are some pictures from the play.
