This dramatization, based on Leela Naidu’s autobiography co-authored by Jerry Pinto, unravels some of the mysteries and shares some of the tragedy. The blurred lines of fact and fiction, of fantasy and reality and the elusive and erratic vagaries of fame and fortune only add to her allure. It is based on various true incidents but still it’s a very different, poignant, yet humorous theatre experience. There are excerpts from the film Lila by Bidisha Roy and Priyanjana Dutta as well as from some of Leela Naidus best known films such as Anuradha and The Householder. You are definitely up for something great this time, so book your tickets now for this best theatre event in NCR.
