Taqi Nazeer is a Scottish born writer, actor, presenter, and podcast producer who first worked with Rifco on their hit show Deranged Marriage in 2015.
The commission: Rishta
Taqi says about his play:
“Rishta is a satirical rom-com that is deliberately unapologetic in celebrating South Asian marriage culture in all its beauty, glory and flaws. At its core, it is about challenging misconceptions that being 'British’ and ‘South Asian' is mutually exclusive.
Working with Rifco to craft the bold world of Rishta is a beautifully creative challenge. From day one, Pravesh and Ameet have been committed to not only developing Rishta, but to honing my professional practice as a playwright.
