Amol Palekar returns to theatre after 25 years in Sandhya Gokhale 'Kusur'

Amol Palekar will be seen as ACP Dandavate in Kusur and the play will premiere on November 24 at the TATA Theatre, NCPA, Mumbai.


After a long gap of 25 years, renowned actor-director Amol Palekar will be seen as ACP Dandavate in a Hindi play titled Kusur. Brought to the audience by BookMyShow, the play will be a crime-drama written and co-directed by Sandhya Gokhale along with Palekar, who will also be seen as the protagonist.

Talking about the same, Palekar said, "The fast pace story whirls us through the twists and turns disturbing our complacency and overturning our assumptions. The deep subtext will linger in our minds beyond the curtain drop. As an actor, the role poses an enormous challenge, demanding tremendous emotional and physical energy at my age."  He will be turning 75 on November 24 when the show will premiere at the TATA Theatre, NCPA, Mumbai.

Gokhale who has written the play said, "It may be called a social thriller that can happen in any of our lives." 

On the play, Kumar Razdan, Head - Theatricals, BookMyShow, said, "The appetite for quality theatre in India has grown manifold over time, with Indian audiences seeking varied and quality entertainment options. This has resulted in growing affinity for Indian plays both, the likes of broadway style 'Mughal-e-Azam' as also regional productions like 'A Perfect Murder', 'Albatya Galbatya' enthralling audiences and helping build a larger community for the medium of theatre. Kusur The Mistake' is a spectacular offering and we are thrilled to be able to bring to audiences, this gripping thriller helmed by none other than Amol Palekar, as he makes a comeback to the stage after 25 years."

"Kusur" is produced by JSW and Anaan Nirmitee.
