If you wanted to know all about Mahatma Gandhi and his principles, then here’s a unique way to do so. A radio play called Gandhi, which features popular names from theatre, aims at providing an alternative way of thinking for the youth in everyday situations.

An innovative venture of Fever Entertainment, Gandhi explores the lesser known excerpts from Bapu’s life. “The script has been beautifully written. We all know Gandhi, but the script introduces him in a better way,” says actor Heeba Shah, who is playing the role of Kasturba Gandhi in the play.

“The play answers the primary question of what happened to Kasturba. There are instances of the intimate relationship between her and Gandhi before he left for South Africa,” says Shah.

“From the basic things such as hygiene and clean surroundings to the larger lesson of telling the truth, there is so much to learn from Gandhi’s life. The script has been intelligently woven,” says actor Rajit Kapoor, who is playing the lead role in the play.

The cast also includes Farooq Sheikh who plays Bharat, depicting today’s India, and Sachin Khedekar as Bhimrao Ambedkar.

“Through this play, we are paying a tribute to the father of our nation,” says Harshad Jain, Business Head, Radio & Entertainment, HT Media Ltd.
