Jamia Millia Islamia VC Najeeb Jung to 'play' a new role

Friday February 25, 2011 12:34:03 PM, IANS

Jamia Millia Islamia Vice Chancellor Najeeb Jung

New Delhi: Jamia Millia Islamia Vice Chancellor Najeeb Jung will soon be seen in a new 'role' as he will act in a play staged in the campus.

The Outreach Programme of Jamia Millia Islamia in collaboration with the Indian People's Theatre Association (IPTA), Delhi, will put together two stage productions on the Jamia campus, in one of which Jung will be seen playing a part.

Jung will play the role of Mughal emperor Akbar in one of the plays, Anarkali-Akbar-Salim.

"Jung will play the part of Akbar. Stage actors Ankita Gusain and Jitin Gaur will play the part of Anarkali and Salim," an official from Jamia said.

The play will be performed at 6.30 p.m. Sunday in M.A. Ansari Auditorium, Jamia Millia Islamia. The duration of the play is 80 minutes.

Be-Libaas, the other play to be staged, will be performed at 6.30 p.m. Monday, also in M.A. Ansari Auditorium, Jamia Millia Islamia. The duration of the play is 90 minutes.

"The play Be-Libaas is about men, women, the society they live in and the options they have. Different anecdotes about human relationships and supposedly 'free choice' give us a mirror of life where there are both victims and victimisers," the official said.

Both plays have been directed by eminent actor and stage personality Aziz Quraishi, who has acted in more than 50 plays and has worked with the likes of E. Alkazi, Naseeruddin Shah, Anupam Kher, Ranjit Kapoor and acted in more than 50 TV serials, among these "Hum Log" and "Sword of Tipu Sultan".
