Veteran Bollywood actor-director Satish Kaushik is all set to return to theatre with Saif Hyder Hasan’s next commercial production scheduled to be staged here on September 17 and 18.
Titled “Mr and Mrs Murarilal,” the 120-minute-long play that will see Kaushik romancing Meghna Malik of “Na Aana Is Des Laado” fame, puts forth the realities of different aspects of life – old age, friendship and love.
The plot that goes on to narrate the events of an evening after the two meet in a park, strikes an emotional chord with the audience and at the same time cracks them up with perfectly timed humour.
As the evening progresses, the protagonists talk their heart out, sing songs, and confess their love to each other even as they carry “secrets” in their hearts, to suggest its underlying theme of old age loneliness.
“The play marks the return of Satish Kaushik to the stage, to theatre. Something where he began his acting journey from,” says Hassan.
Produced, written and directed by Hasan, the play is the third in his repertoire of ‘commercial theatre’ after plays like “Ek Mulaqat” and “Gardish Mein Taare.”
Kaushik, an alumni of National School of Drama (NSD) has also lent his voice to the songs in the production, Hasan says.
The play made its debut in Mumbai last month and will be staged at Shri Satya Sai Auditorium here.
