Renowned theatre director Feroz Abbas Khan can’t believe that his colleague Aamir Raza Husain is gone. “I am devastated,” said Feroz. “He was truly a trailblazer in theatre, imagining the impossible and making it happen. Ramayan and Kargil were audacious productions that mesmerised the audiences.”
Aamir Raza Husain death: Theatre legend Feroz Abbas Khan, Manoj Bajpayee and Imran Zahid pay tribute
Feroz admitted that Raza was an inspiration. “Personally, I have been inspired by his vision and imagination. He was very learned and generous with his time and knowledge. We have lost a very powerful voice,” he said.
Manoj Bajpayee, who was a devoted stage actor before doing films, said, “I never knew him personally but always admired his zeal and passion to make the stage look bigger than the screen! All his plays not only told stories but also left audience in awe of the settings and the characters! He will be missed by all the people who believed stage is the superior performing arts medium! Rest in peace Aamir Raza Husain.”
Theatre and film actor Imran Zahid admits to being inspired by Raza. He said, “Bahut chhote the tab suna tha unke play Ramayan ke baare me… ke bahut bada set tha unke play ka poora. Feroz Shah Kotla mein play ka set tha… aur fir Kargil pe play tha jisme unhone helicopter bhi use kiya tha that too in year 2000. Aisa play aur feel sirf Aamir Raza Husain hi kar sakte the. Har theatre practitioner ka khawab hota hai aise legendary theatre director ke saath kaam karne ka (I was very young when I had heard about his Ramayan where the entire Feroz Shah Kotla stadium in Delhi was the stage. He did a play on Kargil where he used a real helicopter, and that too in the year 2000. Only Aamir Raza Husain could bring such grandeur on stage. Every theatre practitioner dreamt of working with him).”
