  1. Best Choreography

Shaheed Bhagat Singh’s character has always been very close to my heart. During my research for Gagan Damama Bajyo, I felt very close to him because I had started imagining him. For any writer, I believe imagination plays a very big role. I tried to depict his character as one of us, someone who has a family & friends that he is responsible for. The play shows him as a friend, a son, a lover and an intellectual, who found himself unable to sit back in a country fighting for its freedom from oppression. He was one of the biggest revolutionaries and his contribution to India’s freedom is really valuable.
