Zee Theatre is currently screening Makarand Deshpande’s classic play Sir Sir Sarla. The teleplay which stars Makarand Deshpande, Aahana Kumra, Sanjay Dadhich and Anjum Sharma explores the dynamics of a student-teacher relationship.
The play holds a special place in actor Sanjay Dadhich’s life, who plays the role of Phanidhar. He says, “I used to help backstage when Anurag Kashyap was playing the role of Phanidhar. I have seen him breathe life into the character and wished to be a part of such a classic. My dream came true when I was asked to step in his shoes and play the role of Phanidhar.”
Sanjay further added that Kashyap would often joke with him, “Anurag would tell me that if he had not left Sir Sir Sarla, I wouldn’t have been able to play Phanidhar.”
