They say theatre is the true test of an actor’s mettle. Well, Richa Chadda and Kalki Koechlin are set to test their acting prowess with a play.
Richa Chadda and Kalki Koechlin will soon be seen in a film based on travel and a coming-of-age story titled “Jiah aur Jiah”. But before the audiences get to see them on the big screen, the two actresses have joined hands for a play.
Richa and Kalki will play lead characters in a play directed by Atul Kumar.
The play rehearsals are reportedly already underway and the production will premiere in Mumbai in July, following which it will later tour six cities across the country.
“The involvement of the two in the shows apart from Mumbai isn't clear yet, but we hear if their schedules allow, they will be performing in Delhi and Bangalore,” said a source.
Both the actresses are no strangers to live stage performance as Richa Chadda started her career as a theater actress in Delhi, while Kalki Koechlin has had a long-standing passion and relationship with the medium.
However, Richa was apprehensive about doing the play initially, says a source.
“She basically was apprehensive of doing the play, but while she was in New York and she spent time watching various plays, she got sort of tempted to go back on stage,” added the source.
