Tour. Director Feroz Abbas Khan expressed his overwhelming response, stating, “We never expected
this kind of a response. The way the audience is embracing the play is simply outstanding. I’m quite

that this is actually a soft power of India, showcasing the cultural aspect of the country. I’m very glad
that this show achieved that. And that’s all because of the audience’s support. The biggest pleasure
