BJP MP Shatrughan Sinha took recourse to his talent on Friday in theatre to attack his own party and leaders using a political satire.

The play at the SK Memorial Hall in Sinha’s constituency Patna Saheb unfolded in the presence of Bihar chief minister Nitish Kumar and his ally RJD chief Lalu Prasad. However,there were no BJP leaders in attendance.

The Bollywood actor turned BJP MP and his team hosted the play “Pati, Patni aur Mein” (Husband, wife and me).

Directed by Ramesh Talwar and written by Manohar Katdare,the play featured Rakesh Bedi, Dimple Danda and Sanjay Goradia, besides Sinha.

The nearly two-hour long play is a satire on contemporary politics and politicians including many from BJP itself.

Playing the lead role as presenter, Sinha laced his dialogue with one-liners that triggered peals of laughter from the audience.

Sinha, popularly known as “Bihari Babu”, has been at odds with BJP since Bihar poll at the fag end of last year after party leaders ignored him in the elections.

A close associate of veteran BJP leader LK Advani, Sinha has taken several potshots at his own party through display of bonhomie with “friend” Nitish Kumar and RJD president Lalu Prasad leaving his party leaders embarrassed.

Recently a biography of Sinha was released by Nitish Kumar in presence of Lalu Prasad. None of the Bihar BJP leaders were present in the book release function.

The play was hosted by Bihar Art, Culture and Youth Department with Bihar Sangeet Natak Academy.
