Screening of English Musical Play “Avanti Returns” for IBA Alumni


As part of the social engagement initiative for the Alumni, an English Musical Play “Avanti Returns” was organized on Sunday November 03, 2013 at Arts Council, Karachi at a discounted price. Almost 50 alumni and their family and friends participated in this activity and relished the onstage adaptation of the popular Indian film Aaja Nachle packaged in a musical performance filled with satirical puns. Here is what some of the Alumni had to say about the play:


Fantastic performance. It was the first experience for my 12 year old daughter. Occasionally, I looked at her and she was thoroughly enjoying the live performance. She took several video shots. It made both me and my wife very happy. We also enjoyed it and would like to be part of such occasions again.

--Naveed Iqbal, Alumnus 2000

It was a great experience and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Hope to attend more events of the same nature. Keep up the good work.
--Adeel Anwer, Alumnus 2007

It was a wonderful experience very entertaining indeed. Will like to see the next play with IBA being the sole sponsor for the event. Thx.

The overwhelming response by the Alumni in social engagement activities has been the driving force in conducting such events. Earlier, movie screenings were carried out which was well-received by the Alumni.
