Rajeev Siddhartha on being a part of teleplay Adhe Adhure

Zee Theatre’s latest offering is Mohan Rakesh’s timeless classic, Adhe Adhure. One of the most significant plays in the history of Indian theatre, Adhe Adhure was published in 1968 but its characters and theme continue to be relatable. The play is about a five-member family embittered by destitution and Mohan Rakesh masterfully depicts how unmet needs can drive people to lose their empathy.

Rajeev Siddhartha, who plays Ashok in the play, says, “Ashok’s character represents the desire to break free. There is a lot of angst and anger in him. He is like any guy in his twenties who feels that the world cannot understand him. He cannot understand the world either and feels a lot of irritation towards his mother. He wants to be left alone to figure out things on his own. It was interesting to play this part.”
