New Delhi, [India] Aug 04 (ANI): One of the most successful plays in India 'Mughal-e-Azam: The Musical' is set to be premiered in Kuala Lumpur.
With successful shows across India and in Dubai, it will be staged in the Malaysian capital from August 10 to 11.
Datuk Nabhesh Khanna who played an important role in getting the play to Kuala Lumpur said that for now, it is an inter-government project.
"We have worked very hard to bring the prestigious play to Malaysia. We approached the Indian High Commission which in turn got the Malaysian Tourism, Arts and Culture Ministry to be part of the cultural exchange project. As such, it is now a government-to-government project," said the event's cultural director, Datuk Nabhesh Khanna.
The director of the play, Feroz Abbas Khan, said that the play transcends boundaries.
"'Mughal-e-Azam' has a universal appeal which transcends barriers of language and culture. It is a story of love that seems to connect with audiences everywhere. We are delighted that the play is traveling to Malaysia as part of a cultural exchange between the two govternments. It encourages artistes to work harder when governments support such work," Khan added.
'Mughal-e-Azam: The Musical' is a visual extravaganza with songs, dance and costumes designed by Manish Malhotra.
The play will be staged at the Istana Budaya theatre in Kuala Lumpur.
The two hour and twenty minute long play will be staged in Hindi with Malaysian and English subtitles on two LED screens. (ANI)
