Anwar Maqsood’s most recent script, Naach Na Jaanay, was performed with full zeal at the Karachi Art Council and the cast will keep performing it till April 14. It is the first play that has been produced by the Arts Council. During a press conference held recently at Karachi Arts Council, Anwar Masood has unveiled the title of his next play that is going to be “Naya Pakistan”.
The play under title ‘Naya Pakistan’ will be premiered on August 14. While addressing media personnel during the press conference, Maqsood stated, “I am amazed at writing a second play too soon as I take long breaks between writing screenplays.”
“Naya Pakistan is based on a barrow-man who is selling ‘old Pakistan’ on it. The upcoming play is also in line with the artists’ endowment fund.”
Director of Naach Na Jaanay Dawar Mehmood, who was also present at the press conference and will also be directing Naya Pakistan as well, informed that international bookings for the former are open now.
The play features Yasir Hussain as Akbar, Abdullah Farhat as Mehboob Sahab, Sara Bhatti as Begum Jehan Ara while Asad Gujjar will be seen as Chaudhry Sahab.
