Kolkata: ‘Gadha aur Gadda’, a Hindi play directed by Naseeruddin Shah inspired by the works of one of India’s first Urdu satirists was staged on the fifth day of the Minerva National Drama Festival at Rabindra Sadan in Kolkata.

The play consisted of selections from master satirist Krishen Chander’s celebrated works such as ‘Hindi Ka Naya Kaida’ and ‘Ek Gaddhe Ki Aatmakatha’.


His stories reflect the struggles faced by the common man in today’s world. His style is quite similar to that of famed cartoonist RK Laxman.

The play, which featured Naseeruddin Shah, Faisal Rashid, Saahil Vaid, Dhruv Kalra and Ahana Kumra among others, showcased brilliant script and acting.

“Intolerance was always present in the past, and will remain in the future,” said Shah.

Though the play used minimal set design, lighting and music effects, the theme proved very relatable to the audience.
