Veteran Bollywood actor Naseeruddin Shah, who’s also a renowned theatre artiste, is set to enact the well-known play, ‘Ismat Apa Ke Naam’, in Dubai.

ADSS, in association with veteran actor and the stalwart of Indian theater Naseeruddin Shah, is delighted to bring the immensely popular play "Ismat Apa Ke Naam" to Dubai. Directed by Naseeruddin Shah himself, this power-packed production is scheduled to take place on Saturday, June 24, 2023 at The Theatre, Mall of The Emirates, Dubai from 8 -10 pm. In the 2 hour long Hindi –Urdu play, Naseeruddin Shah, his wife Ratna Pathak Shah and daughter Heeba Shah will be seen in lead roles.

"Ismat Apa Ke Naam" comprises three heart-touching short stories written by the celebrated Urdu writer, Ismat Chugtai. Narrated by the gifted actors of the Motley theater group, the play explores the theme of women's survival in a male-dominated society.

Ratna Pathak Shah brings to life "Mughal Bacche," set in the post-Mughal era, which humorously comments on the social dynamics of the landed gentry of Uttar Pradesh while intertwining a love story. Her portrayal skillfully captures the underlying irony of the narrative.

In "Chhui Muee," narrated by Heeba Shah, the audience is taken through an incident of childbirth witnessed by three upper-class women in a train compartment. The story explores their diverse reactions and the impact of the experience on each of them.

Naseeruddin Shah concludes the play with his tongue-in-cheek and mischievous narration of "Gharwali." With his remarkable talent, he effortlessly transitions between different characters, bringing Ismat's pungent and ironic prose to life in a delightful half-hour performance.

Tickets are available online on 800 Tickets and Virgin Tickets, and start from Dh275.
