Ekjute under the guidance of Nadira Zaheer Babbar, a National School of Drama (NSD) graduate, has presented over sixty plays in the last 24 years. The group by virtue of its long standing in the field of theatre has acquired a name for itself as one of the leading Hindi theatre groups in the city.
In 1990, the Ekjute Young People's Theatre group was formed, under which major productions such as Aao Picnic Challen and Azdak Ka Insaaf have been presented. Many NSD and FTII (Film and Television Institute of India) have passed through the group's portals, and enriched Babbar's vision- Sushmita Mukherjee, Ravi Baswani, Kiron Kher, Anupam Kher, Anita Kanwar, Rajendra Gupta, Ashish Vidyarthi- to name a few.
Ekjute has traveled extensively around the world representing India in various international theatre festivals. They have toured in Bahrain, Iran, Singapore and many other places.
