You've heard of funny tales where the mother and daughter are pregnant at the same time. Actually, you haven't. Until today.
The Rotary Club of Secunderabad, in association with Religare, is staging a famous comedy play from Mumbai, Hadh Kar Di Aapne, at the Shilpa Kala Vedika on 23rd June.
This is the story of a middle class family in which Mohan, the head of the family, aged 52, realizes one fine morning that he is going to be a father again. His wife Radha starts planning this happy event with great enthusiasm. Though he is quite reluctant to be a father, he tries to keep his wife happy by indulging her.
He decides that his wife needs to rest and therefore pampers her. He promptly heaps the entire load on daughter Gouri's not-so-willing shoulders. To wriggle out of this situation, Gouri gets inspired and tries to follow suit. How Mohan handles the situation with a 23-year-old daughter and son-in-law forms the core of the play.
A hilarious comedy that promises to keep everyone engrossed, the play is written by Mir Muneer and directed by Om Katare. The cast for the play are Om Katare, Pratibha Kapoor, Damini Kanwal, Gagan Riar, Paromita Chatterjee, Kishore Singh, Vikas Prasad and Yogendra.
