Once upon a time, around 54 BC (that's before Bollywood Control), weddings in India were simple ''rituals linked to individual communities'' affairs. Then Bollywood changed the face of Indian weddings forever, making them all clones of a Punjabi Bollywood six-day wedding.
Blame it on Yashraj is the hilarious story of a Punjabi/Bengali family, who get caught up in the whirlwind of a wedding when their darling daughter decides to marry a Muslim boy. Innovatively mounted with fast-changing video walls as backdrops, every scene and every emotion is enhanced with music and dances, hilarious parodies of popular Bollywood tracks and an ensemble cast of well-known stage and TV artists. The play, which will feature a foot-tapping score by Louis Bank, promises to be a laugh-a-minute roller coaster ride.
The humor in the play comes not from gags, but from the ''I have seen that, I have said that, I have experienced that in my family!'' feeling! The play is a mirror to our life being shown on stage.
