Sharman Joshi who was last seen in the Satish Kaushik film Gang Of Ghosts has been missing from the overall Bollywood scene off late. However his absence cannot by any chance be mistaken for complacence. In fact the actor best remembered for his roles in films like Rang De Basanti, 3 Idiots, and more recently Ferrari Ki Sawaari has gravitated back to his roots, theatre.
Posting a picture of the poster of his new play titled ‘Raju Raja Ram Aur Main’ the actor posted, “What do you think guys?”. The Hindi play that features Rajesh Bhosale, Rajesh Dubey, Rajesh Singh, Manasi Rachh, Namya Saxena, Pradeep Vengurlekar, Shivani Karadkar in addition to Sharman is said to be a comedy. Interestingly it is Sharman who plays the part of Madan Sukhnandani, an industrialist, who features in three roles.
Written, directed and adapted into Hindi by Kedar Shinde ‘Raju Raja Ram Aur Main’ is an adaptation of the popular Marathi play Sahi Re Sahi. Madan Sukhnandani. The story of the play follows an industrialist, catches his second wife red- handed with her lover, who is his personal assistant. In a turn of events, the husband gets murdered. While the corpse is hidden, an imposter is brought in to get the property willed to the wife. But this plan also falls flat as Madan has several undated wills in circulation, which are in the possession of his daughter and other relatives. As many as three look- alikes of Madan appear on the scene.
