Cutting Chai with Bhawana Somaaya - Day 544

Two to Tango

Decades ago when director Feroze Abbas Khan conceived Tumhari Amrita inspired from Love Letters with Shabana Azmi/ Amrita and Zulfikar/ Faroque Shaikh reading letters from their individual desks, the idea was given a thumbs down by the skeptics.

On this woman’s day Main Tenu Phir Milungi featuring singer Kavita Singh singing poetry of revolutionary writer Amrita Pritam combined with exchange of letters recited by Salim Arif playing Sahir Ludhianvi and Lubna Salim playing Amrita. 

In the evening Rakesh Bedi’s play Mera wo Matlab Nahi Tha about lovers who parted many years ago and starring Anupam Kher and Neena Gupta was premiered at Mumbai’s NCPA theatre.
