Kolkata: Raju, Ram Aur Main, a play directed by Kedhar Shinde, with Sharman Joshi as the protagonist, was staged today at Rabindra Sadan on the fourth day of the Minerva National Drama Festival.

The comic play in Hindi portrayed the selfish and cruel human psychology and the inherent greed in human beings which overshadows the love and benevolence even among family members.

The play started with the murder of the property owner Mr Sukhnandani (Sharman Joshi) in the hands of his wife Rupa and his PA, Aniket Dalall, and went on to show how the family members conspired to claim his property in their own name.

Joshi surprised the audience with his portrayal of all three characters of Raju, Ram and Mr Sukhnandani.

It ended with an appearance of the real Mr Sukhnandani with the chorus playing, “The truth is bitter but it is hard to deny”.

“The play talks about the rising intolerance within the family unit,” said Sharman Joshi in an interaction with NewsGram.

Raju, Ram Aur Main struck a chord with the audience, who laughed along every comic scene. Though the light and set designs were nothing extraordinary, a robust script and Joshi’s skillful acting made it an entertaining watch.

Tanaaz and Delnaaz are working together after 18 years on a play titled “Wrong Number”. They last worked together in a play titled “I Do I Don’t”.

“Working with relatives is really dangerous and working with relatives is difficult but working with Delnaaz is not like working with a relative. I think we both are very mature and senior enough as we do not let any non-sense get in our way . In real life we are sisters-in-law but I don’t think that we have ever displayed that relationship on set,” Tanaaz said in a statement to IANS.

“Delnaaz and I have always been friends. I guess it is very rare that you get to see Parsi’s in the world of Hindi theatre. Delnaaz and I more or less think the same, except I presented in a more energetic, more stormy and in a more naughty manner whereas, Delnaaz is more calculated and slightly slow but being a Virgo she is nice and simple,” she added.
