Actor Vicky Kaushal has come on board for an upcoming play titled ‘36 Ghante’, a unique show in which he will come to know about the director and play only 12 hours prior to the performance.
The play titled ‘36 Ghante’ has 10 writers write a play which will then be picked at random by 10 directors, each getting 12 hours to make and put together a production. It will be staged in Mumbai by the end of this month.
Vicky is currently working on Meghna Gulzar’s Raazi and will soon begin shooting for ‘Uri.’
Vicky said in a statement: “This play is called Chattis Ghante. I felt conceptually, this play is very exciting because it will happen only this one time only, this one night, and it is not going to be repeated ever. The concept is that before the show, the actors are going to come to know of the co-actors, script, director only 12 hours before the show. So, whatever they have to do, is in those 12 hours that they have to prepare the play. That, for me, was very exciting to take part in.”
The initiative is by Rage Productions, and is also a fund raiser for theatre where all the collections received from the tickets will be given to the people working backstage.
“We don’t know who they are, but they are also pillars in theatre apart from the actors, directors and writers. The people who get the set ready, make-up artists, costume people, dress dada and everyone… The collection is going to be distributed to these people,” he added.
On the film front, Vicky has multiple projects to look forward to. He has already shot for a few major movies including Rajkumar Hirani’s biopic on Sanjay Dutt.
Vicky will be seen opposite Alia Bhatt in Raazi, he has a pivotal role in the much-awaited Dutt biopic and he will be essaying his romantic hero side in’ Love Per Square Foot’.
He will also soon commence the shoot of his lead role in a film based on the real life story of the Indian Army’s surgical strike in Uri.
