"Kaifi Aur Main" at the fund-raising dinner of the Woman's India Association UK
Britain’s oldest Asian charity had a very successful fund raising evening on the 6th December ‘06 at the New London Theatre in Covent Garden. Javed Akhtar and Shabana Azmi brought to the city, on the final leg of their international tour, glimpses of her celebrated parents in the play “Kaifi aur Main”.
The evening was co - sponsored by Barclays, Cobra Beer and Eastern Eye. It
was attended and enjoyed equally by Indian and Pakistani socialites as well
as theatre - lovers who welcomed the opportunity to quench their thirst for
Urdu poetry of days gone by. It was followed by dinner with the stars at the
newly opened “Tamarai” restaurant, London’s new hub for food,
art and theatre buffs.
