KARACHI: Although the latest Bollywood film ‘Hamari Adhuri Kahani’ didn’t go well on the box office in India but even then actor/director Happy Ranajit is ready to adapt this script for the stage.
The play will be opened in Delhi on August 1 and then it will travel to Karachi very soon, told Mahesh Bhatt in his social media account.
The story, adapted from Mahesh Bhatt and Suhrita Sengupta’s novel ‘All That Could Have Been’, follows the tragic love story of rich hotelier ‘Aarav’ (played by Emraan Hashmi in the film) and florist ‘Vasudha (Vidya Balan) whose romance is cut short by the return of the latter’s husband after a long mysterious disappearance.
Mahesh Bhatt’s protégé Imran Zahid will perform the role of Hashmi whereas the rock band of Pakistan ‘Raeth’ will compose its music, disclosed Bhatt.
This is not the first time that Bhatt’s play is being staged in Pakistan. Earlier in April, ‘Daddy’ was put up as part of NAPA’s International Theatre Festival, and a Pak-India collaborative play ‘Milne Do’ is also in production.
Based on @MaheshNBhatt All that could have been ( co written by Suhrita Sengupta). Play will open first in delhi on 1st Aug and then Karachi
