Zee Theatre is all set to premiere acclaimed teleplay Aaj Rang Hai on March 28th at 2 pm and 8 pm to celebrate Holi. Written and directed by Purva Naresh, one of the most powerful and influential female voices in contemporary Indian theatre, Aaj Rang Hai is a musical celebration of India’s syncretic cultural and artistic traditions through the poetry of Amir Khusrau. A period drama set in post-Partition India, the play invokes Khusrau’s all-embracing philosophy in an attempt to foster communal harmony in a society that is becoming increasingly separatist.
Purva says, “The play is set in post-Partition India but there are many moments in the narrative that remind us of the headlines we see today. Love is the foundation of human existence, art, culture, of everything we are and do. The root word of humanity is human and we cannot be fully human without love.”
