The makers of the film Issaq have come up with a unique plan to promote their movie. On Tuesday (June 18), the lead actors — Prateik and Amyra Dastur — will enact a skit inspired by the legendary Shakespearean play, Romeo and Juliet, at a promotional event in the city.
“The film is a broad adaptation of sorts of the play, so what could be a better way than to get the actors to reprise the characters on stage?” says director Manish Tiwari. For the skit, Manish has picked the famous scene where Romeo climbs into Juliet’s balcony.
It’s about seven minutes long. Those who have seen the trailer will know that the film is very dialogue-heavy. So we wanted to give the audience a lighter version with the skit,”
