Zee Theatre recently launched Makarand Deshpande’s iconic play Sir Sir Sarla. The teleplay which stars Makarand Deshpande, Aahana Kumra, Sanjay Dadhich and Anjum Sharma explores different dynamics of a student-teacher relationship. The play, Makarand explains, begins at a time of youthful idealism when a student who loves literature is trying to discover a poet within but then inevitably has to learn the difference between flights of fancy and reality.
Talking about the same, Makarand says, “We experience so much pressure from tradition and belief systems that it stops us from speaking our heart out… When you are not yourself, life is only pain and a tragedy. So, everything is about the right timing but society doesn’t allow you to be on your own timeline. That’s why they say if you really want to be in love, prepare yourself for war as well.”
