One of the popular names in the Gujarati theatre space is Manhar Gadhia, who is known for his work in commercial and experimental Gujarati plays. After garnering success with his latest production, Saat Teri Ekvis season 3, the team has decided to make the same in Hindi titled #Womanologues. This set of monologues has an underlying theme of "desire".

The play is written by seven talented writers (Abhinay Banker, Ketan Mistry, Raam Mori, Rahul Patel, Sanjay Chhel, Sanjay Trivedi) and directed by ace actor/director Pratik Gandhi. Besides this, the cast includes eminent names like Ami Trivedi, Binda Rawal, Bhamini Oza Gandhi, Chitraleka Rathod, Namrata Pathak, Tusharika Rajguru and Veronica Gautam.

Talking more about the same, Manhar said, "There's a lot of talent waiting to be appreciated. While collating for stories, I selected seven prolific writers whose fresh approach to the subject will surely strike a chord in the minds and hearts of the audience. We chose some of the well-known faces from television and theatre as well as some new dynamic actors. To direct these fresh stories and talented lot, I selected Pratik Gandhi - a director's actor whose attention to detail and passion for the craft has been most impressive and so will be his new role as an actor's director."

Adding to this thought, director Pratik Gandhi said, "As an actor, I have always been directed by some of the best people in the industry. I started performing monologues with the first season of Saat Teri Ekvis (Gujarati) and then came back to perform for the second & third season as well. I feel monologues hone an actor's skill, as one doesn’t have any other actor to support one's performance, just props. So it pushes an actor to create that strong engagement with the audience for the span of the performance. As I wanted to gradually head towards directing and Mr. Gadhia showed faith in me and gave me this opportunity. For my directorial debut, we explored scripts revolving around desire from a woman's perspective. Directing #Womanologues was a challenge and an absolute delight. Be it Survival, Intimacy, Being Oneself, Motherhood, Love, To Be Born or Appreciation, each mood is different, so is it’s energy. While some stories may evoke heart-warming smiles, others may evoke a soul-searching silence, but all will make one sit up and notice a woman's soul with a new perspective."

One can watch the play in Mumbai at Prithvi Theatre on June 13 and 14, 2019, at 6:00 PM and 9:00 PM respectively.
