After Islamabad, The Insane Productions kicked off SIR KALAM, a dark comedy theater play written by Saiban Khaliq and produced by ISPR, at the Karachi Arts Council from May 1st, 2017.
The play stars Shamayale Khattak, Aymen Shuja Zuberi, Sardar Osman, Zainab Raja, Tayyab Anwar, Sarmad Bashir, Saiban Khaliq and Wasiq Ali Zia. Mansoor Kalam, the writer of the play, presents the secret formula of becoming a successful playwright in Pakistan. He shares it by giving examples of three of his award winning screenplays. While he does so, he is confronted by an obsessed fan who makes Mansoor Kalam wonder; “Can a story, change someone’s life?” Theater is a story of a commercial playwright who writes meaningless and overly glamorized stories that only serve the purpose of making money.
Khaliq has taken his theatre plays across the nation on multiple occasions. Having previously written and directed 9 theatre plays, he now brings Sir Kalam to the Karachi Arts council. The play will continue till the 10th of May.
Top celebrities and socialites including Ahad Raza Mir, Asif Raza Mir, Muzna Ebarhim, Syed Tipu Sharif, Danish Nawaz,Naeem Haque, Hania Aamir, Kasim Khan showed up at the premiere’s red carpet.
