A monologue competition organised by theatre veteran Iqbal Niyazi’s Kirdaar Art Academy and Mumbai University’s Academy of Theatre Arts recently took place at the Kalina Campus in Mumbai on 22nd March 2018. The competition saw 27 mono acts out of which five were awarded. The judges included the likes of Avtar Gill, Himani Shivpuri, Zakir Hussain and Sarita Hussain.

The names of the winners are as follows:
Best Actor:
Amit Vikram Pandey

Best Writer: Lovely Kumari for BADAL AUR DINOSAUR

Best Director: Dilip Tekwani for INSAAF: I WANT JUSTICE

1st Prize for Best Monologue: Amit Vikram Pandey for ROOH

2nd Prize for Best Monologue: Lovely Kumari for BADAL AUR DINOSAUR

3rd Prize for Best Monologue: Meet Vora for MUJHE AANKHON SE BAATEIN KARNA AATA HAI

Consolation Prize 1: Pankhudi Srivastav

Consolation Prize 2: Dilip Tekwani for INSAAF: I WANT JUSTICE.

Speaking about the reason for holding this competition Iqbal Niyazi said, “A lot of drama competitions keep taking place in Mumbai by the likes of Bhavans, IPTA, Hindi Vidyapeeth, Bhausahab competition, etc. So, we thought of doing something different. Hence, we thought of organizing a monologue competition.”

He added that the aim was also to help strugglers in the future. “There are a lot of strugglers who have their monologues ready to show at auditions. So, we thought why not provide a platform for them. We have also shot their videos, which we will be providing to them so that they can shot it wherever they go for an audition,” Iqbal Niyazi said.

Along with the prizes the five winners will also get another chance of showcasing their acts. “Very soon Kirdaar Art Academy will stage the five prize winning monologues so that those people who couldn’t see them would get a chance of enjoying them,” he added.
