Aga Khan Academy Hyderabad, has kick-started its ‘Showcase Week’ at Phoenix Arena on Tuesday. It started with a painting exhibition by students of Class VII to XI. The art expo was inaugurated by Sravanthi Juluri, a renowned artist. The art show is on display until March 17. 

Following the painting exhibition inauguration, a multilingual play ‘Vishwavikhyatha Mooku’ was staged by the students of Aga Khan Academy at the Amphitheatre. The comedy play ‘Vishwavikhyatha Mooku’ is adapted from the Kerala’s fiction writer Vaikom Mohammad Basheer’s play of the same name.   

The play revolves around a young man, Mukun, who works as a cook in a rich man’s house. After his 24th birthday celebrations, his nose starts growing day by day and it reaches to his navel. Due to this, he loses his job and later he becomes popular with his big nose. Knowing his popularity, the local politicians use him for their election campaigns. And many curious scientists conduct research and discussions to see if the nose is real of fake.

The 90-minute comedy play is a perfect example of how one person can be used for the benefits of others. It is also showcased the behaviour of media and politicians in the country. ‘Vishwavikhyatha Mooku’ is also a hilarious take on how people react to the unexpected things. Around 15 children, who acted in the play, mesmerised the audience with their flawless performance.
