The Indian stage is set for grand theatre plays and prominent actor Shekhar Suman is set to return to the medium with Anand Mahendroo’s play titled ‘Wah Nawab Wah!’. Shekhar who last appeared in the play ‘Ek Mulaqaat’ is very excited about the upcoming play.
‘Wah Nawab Wah!’ is a political satire highlighting the lengths to which our leaders go to retain power. The various subjects that this play deals with are woven wonderfully in a musical narrative without sounding preachy and is set to make for a spectacular watch.
Says Shekhar Suman, “I feel like I am getting to do the kind of work I have always wanted to do. Even if there was a hiatus in between, I was still working, but it is a greater pleasure when you get to do the kind of work that you always want to do.”
He further adds, “Whenever I watched Broadway in New York, I always wondered why we couldn’t do plays on such a big scale. I am happy that at least this trend has started with ‘Mughal-e-Azam’, and has been very well received.”
‘Wah Nawab Wah!’ holds immense prominence for actor Shekhar as with this play, he re-unites with director Anand Mahendroo and writer Sharad Joshi post ‘Dekh Bhai Dekh’.
‘Wah Nawab Wah!’ is written by Sharad Joshi and directed by Anand Mahendroo.
