Jaan Ada: A Westend Musical Play!” This timeless epic’s musical adaptation, produced by Meit Shah of Eb5 Florida Real Estate in a Broadway-style production, promises to enchant you and take you on a journey through an era that witnessed one of the most iconic stories in courtesan history.

Helmed by the noted director Rajeev Goswami, the story follows the journey of Amiran, kidnapped as a child and sold to a brothel in Lucknow. Forced into the life of a courtesan and renamed Umraao Jaan Ada, her life undergoes an irrevocable transformation, especially after she meets and falls deeply in love with Nawab Sultan. What unfolds is a tumultuous relationship spanning decades, inseparable despite the cruelty of circumstances and societal norms conspiring to keep them apart.

In portraying Umrao Jaan’s all-consuming love and inner turmoil, Neetu Chandra is poised to deliver a career-defining performance. Supported by a stellar cast and crew, she will breathe tangible life into this tragic saga, immortalized in Ruswa’s novel and popularized by Muzaffar Ali’s 1981 film starring Rekha.
