HYDERABAD: Leading theatre production company Felicity Theatre will stage the magnum opus play Mahabharat in the city on December 15 at Shilpkala Vedika. Featuring Bollywood and television stars, the play is written and directed by film, television and theatre stalwart Puneet Issar. Says the writer and director, “This rendition of Mahabharat brings forth Duryodhan’s version of reality and truth as he saw it.
The play throws light on the human aspects of his life such as his rock solid bond of friendship towards his friend - Karan, his relationship with elders of the Kuru clan and Draupadi. Am sure this version will be an eye-opener for many and allow audiences to view this epic tale with a fresh new perspective.”
