The upcoming theatre plays Kyun Nikala by Kopykats Productions is all set to make its debut in Karachi Arts Council on the 14th of August. Moreover, Dawar Mehmood and Anwar Maqsood’s reunion is set to make the Independence Day eve even more special and you’re about to find out why!
Although the production house claims that all you need to know about this play is to “read the name of the Play, the name of the writer and date of launch”, let’s get into the details of what this play really is about!
According to director Dawar, the political performance follows the story of Bengali cook who wishes to take part in the elections. Referring to the title of the play Kyun Nikala, a phrase that has become politically known among the citizens of the nation, Anwar Maqsood shared that the phrase is not following any political agenda, rather he revealed that the play was already named with this phrase when it wasn’t familiar to anyone.
“It has nothing to do with the upcoming elections as it was written sometime back and I am not willing to change anything in the play,” Anwar Sahab confirmed.
Director Darwar also added to the statement, “Anwar Sahab has written the most beautiful dialogues and the most amazing script for Kyun Nikala. None of our past plays will be able to match the beauty with which he has written this time. Since we are coming together after over three years, we both are quite nervous and sensitive about this one.”
The rehearsal for the play had already begun at the start of July 2018, and the lineup features all new actors.
Kyun Nikala will premiere at the Karachi Arts Council on the 14th of August and will run till September 15, before the performers move to other cities.
We are very excited about this play and can’t wait to see it! Here’s a teaser while you wait for the 14th of August!
