Faysal Quraishi reads Saadat Hasan Manto's story Ghusal Khana

Saadat Hasan Manto was a prolific writer who penned some of the most honest human stories with the subcontinent as a backdrop. Zee Theatre’s Yaar Julahay, a series of dramatic readings, now features his witty and insightful tale Ghusal Khana, which will be read by noted actor, producer and television host Faysal Quraishi. It is a story of a boy whose prayers get heard only when he prays in the Ghusal Khana.

Speaking about the same, Faysal says, “I have seen so many seasoned actors performing the stories of Manto and I always had a desire to emulate them. This story is not just a delightful challenge for an actor, but also a doorway into Manto’s world that people can access via their phones, laptops and television screens.” Director Sarmad Khoosat adds, “Manto had a remarkable sense of humour and this story showcases that quality perfectly. Even those who have not yet discovered him will get a taste of his brilliance just by tuning into this story. Faysal has performed it with such aplomb. He has channelled this young, rather irresponsible lad effortlessly.”
