Deedar vows no more stage dances in theatre
The lyrics of the song have been written by Qaiser Nadeem Guddu and the video has been made by Asif Khan.
The music video of the song is entirely on the culture of Islamabad. It has been released on Youtube and several other channels.
Earlier, stage performer and theatre siren Sonia Idress a.k.a Deedar posted a video on her Facebook page where the actress offered some harsh criticism for Wajahat Rauf’s digital talk-show, Voice Over Man.
The show has featured pretty much the entire spectrum of Pakistan’s film and television stars, including leading celebrities like Humayun Saeed, Mahira Khan and Mehwish Hayat. Wajahat even featured the show’s character in his film Chhalawa and the web-series Enaaya.
She raised the question of what according to her was differential treatment, was related to classism. “So is it the case that by speaking English, all mistakes are overlooked?” she opined, pointing the finger at the audience.
Here it is worth mentioning that the talk show is primarily in Urdu.
The dance performer, who has also starred in films, then specifically explained her stance in relation to certain phrases/words being used in the show.
“Such words have been used on the show which have never been used in the history of theatre. In theatre double meaning dialogues are used which can be interpreted in two different capacities but the way actors are treated on the show, it doesn’t happen in theatre.”
