“‘Daddy’ to be staged as a play in Pakistan. Mahesh & Pooja Bhatt to attend,” Pooja tweeted Thursday, along with the link of an article featured in Pakistan daily The News International.
It reads: “The theatrical adaptation of film producer Mahesh Bhatt’s ‘Daddy’ will be staged at the forthcoming International Theatre Festival 2015 organised by the National Academy of Performing Arts, Karachi.”
