IBA Movie Screening for Alumni


On June 17, 2013, a group of 17 students travelled to As part of alumni engagement activity, a recent Bollywood block buster movie “Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani” was screened exclusively for the IBA alumni at Universe Cineplex, Karachi on Saturday June 29, 2013 on a subsidized rate. The protagonist behind this idea was Mr. Shahid Shafiq, Alumnus of 1974 and Alumni Representative on the IBA Board of Governors who helped arrange sponsors to get the movie tickets for alumni on subsidized rates.

An email was sent to alumni a week before the event and tickets were reserved / sold out within a few hours of the original e-mail! The available number of tickets was 138 tickets, but we had a demand of over 500 + tickets. Tickets were reserved / sold on a strictly first-come-first-served basis. Alumni and their friends and families thoroughly enjoyed the movie and commended the efforts put in to engage alumni through social activities.

You can assist us by clarifying a few questions, which will allow us to enhance engagement activities with the alumni:

1) Would you like to see a new picture, or a classic?

2) Would you rather see English or an Urdu picture?

3) Instead of a movie, would you prefer to see a play? Again, in Urdu or English? A comedy? A musical?

4) What else would you like the alumni to do as a group?
