Rizvi said that he would try to complete the drama in about six months. After its completion, he would arrange an exclusive show for the Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath.

Who is Yogi Yug writer Sultan Ahmed Rizvi

Sultan Ahmed Rizvi is living in Lucknow. He spent four decades in Gorakhpur. They have seen that Hindus and Muslims equally take care of the Gorakhnath temple. He also had seen and experienced the way in which Yogi Adityanath keeps his relationships with others. According to his observation, no Muslim who approached Yogi Adityanath, for solving his/her problems has never been disappointed. Both Ram and Rahim live together in the temple premises. There exists an atmosphere of goodwill, love and brotherhood everywhere. Whether the person is a Hindu or a Muslim, Yogi Adityanath would have looted his love. Sultan Ahmed Rizvi wants to show all these aspects in the play.
