The first play, ‘Waiting for Naseer’, is a comedic tale about chasing success and all the things that happen along the way. The play is written by Sapan Saran, where two actors are waiting outside a theatre to meet the icon Naseeruddin Shah when they get talking. Moreover, the resulting drama – they are each competing for the title of Shah’s biggest fan – makes for comedic relief as they go deeper into their own reel of life to convince the other of their supremacy.
Coming onto the second production, ‘Bali aur Shambhu’, is a hilarious friendship tale of two residents set in an old age home who are poles apart bicker and bond. It is written by Kashmiri actor and playwright Manav Kaul, whose credits also include the Netflix movie ‘Tumhari Sulu’ and series ‘Fame Game’.
