Mumbai: Veteran actress and social activist Shabana Azmi wants a revival of ‘Tumhari Amrita’ - a play that also featured late actor Farooque Sheikh and premiered over two decades ago.

‘Tumhari Amrita’ is a play helmed by Feroz Abbas Khan and she says she is persuading the director to revive it.

"I`m persuading Feroz Khan to revive `Tumhari Amrita’ with a fresh cast. Any ideas on who shud replace Farouque Shaikh and me as Zulfi/ Amrita?,” Shabana posted on Twitter Tuesday.

Inspired by A.R. Guerney`s ‘Love Letters’, ‘Tumhari Amrita’ is a funny, poignant, melancholic chronicle of two people would not come together and could not stay apart.

The play ran for 21 years until Farooque`s untimely death in December 2013.
