Ek Tha Raja, Mumbai 20th February, 2024

This show on Raja Mehdi Ali Khan, launched in Ludhiana on 4th March 2023, was staged in Delhi on 17th and 18th March 2023 at Kamani Auditorium and then at the Nehru Centre in Mumbai on 15th December, 2023 with a repeat performance on 16th December, 2023 to meet the growing demand for our shows.

This Mumbai show was done at the invitation of Kotak Mahindra Bank Ltd., exclusively for its corporate clients. The show, scripted in Ibaadat’s unique conversational style, presented several unknown facets of the poet’s life and works, with focus on his satire, wit and humour. In this musical drama, 15 of his most poetic film songs were rendered in full by 6 consummate singers while another 32 mukhdas/antaras were sung in tarannum. In addition, his 14 poems were also recited. 1 song was also accompanied by dance performance. The event received phenomenal appreciation.
