Which is the last best play you saw?


Your favourite 'adda' to see a play


Your favourite play-character

Khelando, played by Mahesh Modi.

A play you would like to see filmed. Why?

My recent play READY STEADY GO...It is a very contemporary story, a very simple play with interesting characters. It depicts a beautiful father-son relationship and it's a story of every household... so people can relate to it very well. The story has potential to reach the hearts of the audience.

The most hilarious play you have seen


A classical play that you should have read

I guess every play.

A play that changed your perception about the theatre


If you have ever been a part of a theatre production/s, can you recall an event that was insightful, significant or simply humorous?

Many events but I remember one. I was producing a movie in 2011 called 'Chaar'. I was a lead actor as well. I was new to the industry and almost all the crew members were freshers. I use to handle production and acting at the same time. One day i was about to give a shot and was completely in my character. I took a deep breath and director said " roll camera, clap out, act...." and my mobile phone rang before he could say action. I picked the call because it was my manager's call and he said: "Sir, lunch nathi aavyu ane tiffin walo phon nathi upadto, have shu karu ?" I wondered what I was exactly doing.. That time I was under pressure but now we laugh when I recall the episode.

Your favourite director/actor/music or set designer

No comments. I have to work with everyone.

Life in the theatre without the humble batata-wada or the cutting chai... or can you recall the best gastronomic experience you've had in the precincts of the theatre to date?

I would say that most theatre artists are foodies and cutting chai is a support system. We have our own list of foods according to the auditorium in which we are."
