Kuch Bhi Ho Sakta Hai – Hindi Play by Anupam Kher – Friday, 25 March, 7:30 pm
March 25, 2011
This is a journey of a man who should have been a failure; one who manipulated his destiny and forced it to become a success. Never before, in the history of theatre, has the autobiography of an actor been dramatised on stage, especially when he is still practising his craft.
Anupam Kher, with over 300 feature films to boast, is perhaps the most versatile and prolific actor the Indian Cinema has ever seen. He has had some very big hits including Hum Aapke Hai Kaun, Dilwale Dulhania Le Jaiyenge, Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, Kaho Na Pyaar Hai, Kya Kehna, and Bend It Like Beckham. Many films won him critical acclaim and award like Saransh, Daddy, Maine Gandhi ko nahin mara and Chahat.
At the zenith of his career and crossroads of his life, he pauses to reflect and share his pain, joy, tears and laughter, and Anupam's struggle seems like a shaky Hindi film finding some coherence by the sheer determination of the protagonist and interesting twists and turns that life provides in fits and passion. The play will be staged as a full production with Anupam narrating and dramatizing the important events in his life, e.g. first romantic encounter, failure at Gandhi audition, casting in Saransh, awards, personal relationships etc.
Although the play will tell the story of a small town man making it big in the Hindi Film Industry, the audience will identify with him and find snatches of their lives being played on stage.
