The invitations have been sent and promotional campaigns are in full swing for the upcoming 4th Faiz International Festival that is all set to commence from November 16 till November 18 this year at Lahore’s Alhamra Hall.
Among the many local and foreign guests, Bollywood actor Shabana Azmi will also be attending the festival. She confirmed to the management that she will be travelling to Lahore for the fete. Indian film director and writer Muzzafar Ali will also be travelling to Pakistan.
Shabana Azmi is said to make her appearance during a special event held under the name of ‘Kaifi and Faiz’ while Muzzafar Ali will attend a session titled ‘Noor Ki Leher’ on 17th November.
Last year, artists from across the border were unable to attend due to the ongoing Indo-Pak tension. However, this year things seem to be going in a positive direction.
Each day of the festival will end on a performance by Tahira Syed, Zia Mohyedin and Tina Sani respectively. All events are free and open for all except for these performances.
