He said that Imran Aslam was our friend, our guru, our mentor, Imran’s quality was that he never taught as a teacher, he taught people from five years old to 80 years old as friends, even when Imran fell ill he used to come to my office, apparently people think that Imran used to write for children, he used to write for all the mentally immature, Imran Aslam told how to write news in a bad situation, how to do theater.

Thank you, President Arts Council Muhammad Ahmad Shah for working on the theater and giving us the opportunity to present our work here. Art and Aata is a bold and timely political satire that fearlessly probes the pulse of contemporary Pakistan with a sharp and witty sense of humour. The play takes aim at societal flaws and those in positions of power. This humorous yet thought-provoking production invites the audience to laugh heartily and ponder deeply on the pressing issues of the day. The theater was highly appreciated by the audience.
