When one speaks of successful theatre directors, Feroz Abbas Khan is often recalled. If one were to put together a top list of such directors, his name would definitely figure in that list.

His latest RAUNAQ AND JASSI, is an Indianised adaptation of Shakespeare's ROMEO AND JULIET. We asked him what was unique about this adaptation and he said: "It is very difficult to describe the uniqueness of a play as it needs to be experienced." He calls the production "a reimagined version in the form of a musical."

Abbas's success in theatre has been linked to an acuity that understands the business of theatre as much as its creative impetus. We ask him if it is a conscious choice to strike a balance, but he says: "I do what I do without any conscious attempt to balance the aesthetics and commerce. I want the audiences to be emotionally affected and intellectually stimulated."

RAUNAQ AND JASSI is playing this weekend at the Mukesh Patel auditorium, NMIMS at Vile Parle West.
