Filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt is currently making news for his first play as a producer that highlights the plight of the Iraqi people. The play titled: THE LAST SALUTE, is based on a book written by the Iraqi journalist Muntazer-al-Zaidi, who became world famous after hurling shoes on American president George Bush in 2008.

The play is getting rave reviews in India. Mahesh Bhatt had invited the Iraqi Journalist to watch the play in Delhi recently.

Speaking to us about his play, Mahesh Bhatt says, "It was heartening to see the response to this play. It is for the time that we are looking beyond the biased media reporting and touching the real issues that the people of Iraq are beset with. Sometimes I feel if I as a filmmaker can see what is happening in Iraq, I wonder why the media can't fathom the real issue."

So, would we see him making a film on this play that depicts the angst of the Iraqi people, the filmmaker adds, "It would really need courage to make a film on this subject. At the moment I am trying to showcase my play to more people and we are planning to take it to Dubai soon."

Mahesh Bhatt, who has always been vocal about the plight of the Iraqi people, has taken the lead to bring the suffering of the Iraqi's on a public platform.
