Mahesh Bhatt has forever been a strong supporter of cross-border exchange of talent between India and Pakistan. Even despite the political upheaval between the two nations, he is up and about again with an entertainment project to unite the rivals.
Seems like the veteran director will be making a desi version of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, transforming the story into an Indo-Pak romance saga. According to Bollywood Hungama, the Dehli-based actor, Imran Zahid will be playing the hero in the tale.
Speaking to the press, Bhatt revealed the ideology behind the play.
“It will address the theme of us, instead of them”
Rumor is that the title of the endeavor will be ‘Milne Do’, to stand true its theme and mission. Already, the director has roped in Ali Zafar to write a theme song for the play.
“Bhatt sahab has already approached Ali Zafar to write a theme song for the play. We’re now in the process of approaching some more Pakistani singers and composers”
Imran Zahid also tweeted that Zafar will be singing for the play
