Event Description: Pierrot's Troupe presents Ghalib in New Delhi, Hindi Comedy Play.

4pm: Ghalib In New Delhi (Hindi) – The play is arguably India’s most successful and the longest running comedy, being performed for as many as 25 years.  It is an extremely funny account of the re-birth of the renowned 19th century poet Mirza Ghalib’s in the 21st century in New Delhi, highlighting his trials, travails and tribulations – from his second birth at the ISBT in Delhi; to staying in a Servant Quarter with a Delhi University student from Patna; to dealing with a Punjaban land lady; to becoming a Page-3 celebrity. 

Duration: 1 hour 45 mins.

Featuring - Dr M Sayeed Alam, Bhoomi Nikhat Siraj, Rahul Paswan, Alina Zulfiquar, Prince Kumar, Shamsher Ansari, Ankit Chauhan, Franco Paul, Satyam Jha, Rohit Soni, Anju Chhabra, Yash Arora

7:15pm: K L Saigal - “K L Saigal” is the first-ever and the only play on the life, times and the musical brilliance of the Legendary Singer and the First Superstar of Indian Cinema - an eye-opener for the youth, a nostalgic trip for the elders. 

It is not merely a musical tribute: It, instead, is an engaging and highly entertaining portrayal of K L Saigal - Saigal as Sita Ji in Jammu, Saigal as Salesman in Delhi, Saigal as Struggler in Kolkata and Saigal as Superstar in Bombay.   

In the process, the play also re-creates the music and cinema of yesteryears. 

As expected, the play is dotted with the live recital as well as enactment of Saigal’s Ghazals, Film Songs, Dadras, and Thumris which envelope and suffuse the listener as no one else’s do - “Jab Dil Hi toot gaya hum jee kar kya karenge”, “Aah ko chahiye ek umr asar hone tak”, “Lag gai chot karejva mein hai Rama” and “Baalam aaye baso mor-e  man mein”, to name a few.   

Duration - 1 hour 30 mins. 

The play stars Yashraj Malik, who does not only sing like K L Saigal but also looks like him.

Script & Direction: Dr M Sayeed Alam
