The year is 1570. Yousuf Shah Chak, the warrior king of Kashmir captivated by a peasant girl, falls in love with the beauty of her voice and the richness of her rhyme. She is Zoon (the moon). They marry against all odds. Their love, destined to be short lived, is thwarted by a jealous Akbar, the great emperor. Renamed Habba Khatoun, she goes on to become the legendary last poet queen of Kashmir. 

In 2019, in a maidaan somewhere in Kashmir, the stage is set for a dramatic retelling of Zoon’s legendary tale. Five young college students wait to be assigned their roles for the show. Why have they caught the attention of a soldier stationed nearby? In another corner a mysterious woman sits silently. Who is she and what is she doing there? Little do they all know that the drama will unfold before anyone even gets onto stage.

As Kashmir’s past and present collide through the richness of song and poetry, be enthralled by this compelling and dramatic reinterpretation of the story of Zoon, the nightingale of Kashmir.

Aadyam is a Property owned by Aditya Birla Group.

The Aditya Birla Group is one of India’s oldest, most established and respected business groups, having earned the title of a Fortune 500 company, anchored by an extraordinary force of over 120,000 employees belonging to 42 nationalities.

The Setting

Theatre in India, much like other places in the world, has a paradoxical image. As those in the Indian theatre scene would attest, dearth of funds and the occasional distracted audience remain an obstacle in what should otherwise be a free-flowing creative pursuit. At the same time, there is a small but significant section of the intelligentsia that gives the scene a cerebral hue, making it perceivably inaccessible to those who may not be so actively clued into the theatre scene. But all that is a thing of the past.

With the Aditya Birla Group taking a keen interest in being a mentor with a creative mind, Aadyam has served as a catalyst to streamline stage management, encourage marketing ideas, as well as groom administrative structure in the world of the arts.

The Vision

Committed to producing quality performances, Aadyam’s vision is to become one of the biggest gateways to artistic expression for meaningful experiences and capacity audiences in India
