The play, coined Baanjh (infertile) relates the story based on the ongoing dispute between the neighboring countries over the Siachen glacier. The Pakistani director of the play Aamir Nawaz remained unfazed by the event and claimed that while his and the performer’s families were scared for them back home, they are returning to their country with lots of love and affection from their neighbors.
