Known for his roles in Hollywood films such as Star Trek, Scandal and Iron Man, Faran Tahir for the very first time will be performing in Pakistan in the upcoming stage production. Titled Bhai Bhai, the play is an adaptation of Sam Shepard’s iconic comedy, True West.
Directed by Faran Tahir, who will also act in it as well, Bhai Bhai will feature actor and director Ali Tahir, Aamir Qureshi and actress and comedian, Hina Dilpazir, famous for her character Momo in Bulbulay; Hina will be making her theatrical debut.
Bhai Bhai is based on the story of two estranged brothers, Buddy, which will be essayed by Faran Tahir and Boney (Ali Tahir). Boney is a struggling writer, while Buddy is street-smart. Comic situations rise to the point of madness, as the two brothers end up in a role-reversal. The play finishes with the arrival of Amma (essayed by Hina Dilpazir), after her trip from Hunza. She returns and takes the madness to another level, as the two discover family secrets and connections.
Faran Tahir, who is currently in Lahore, will be making his appearance in Pakistan after 39 years with this play that opens in Karachi at the Arts Council on February 4, 2019, before heading to Lahore and Islamabad.
With Faran Tahir’s extensive experience in Hollywood and theatre, let’s see what the theatrical production has in store for audiences in Pakistan.
