According to the KopyKats Productions’ Facebook page, Islamabad's play is the same as the one in Karachi. The Karachi version of Naach Na Jaanay was the tale of a classical dancer named Akbar.

The play was set in 1978 under General Zia’s rule in which a ban was imposed on dance academies. It tells the story of how Akbar had to find a job as a cook to make ends meet.

In the Karachi version, Imran Khan was played by Mehmood himself. Tickets for the play cost Rs2,000 and can be purchased via the KopyKats Facebook page.
