A hypochondriac  of  a  husband, through some misunderstanding is  convinced  that  he  is  going  to  die  soon  of  a  serious  heart  ailment.   So  he starts  to  put  his  affairs  in  order  and  the  first  thing  to  be  done  is  to  plan  his  beloved  wife’s  marriage so  that  she  is  taken  care  of.  However  he  cannot  reveal  to  his  wife  the  seriousness of  the  situation.  The  wife  starts  taking  his  suspicious  ways and  behaviour  for  infidelity… his  noble  thought  boomerangs and  now  the  husband  is  running  for  wife…..and  life!!

Over  the  years we  have  travelled  widely  with  Hai  Mera Dil  to  all  the  metro  cities  and  more  than twice  to  some  cities,  to  smaller  cities,  many  towns  and  even  smaller  colonies. We  have performed  for  mill  workers  in  huge  grounds and  for  students  in  school  auditoriums - however  elite  or downright  rustic an  audience, they  all  respond  with  tremendous  hilarity. There  is  definitely  something  special  here -  the  humour  arises  from  the  simplest  things  of life. There  is  so  much  humour  in  everyday  existence which  we  tend  to  completely overlook  in  our  stressed  out  schedules but  when  highlighted,  it  does  not  fail   to  make  people  burst  into  peals. Hai Mera Dil   has  become  the  best  kind  of  therapy for  life.

Hai Mera  Dil  has  also had  a  thrilling tour of  9  Army  stations  in  the  Northern  Command  from  Chandigarh  to  Jammu,  performing  for  the  Jawans  and  their  families and  for  the  Generals,  Brigadiers  and  Colonels. It  was  fulfilling to perform for the Indian army and exciting  to  have  about 13  Generals  in  one  show  and  even more  exciting  to  have  the  Generals  and  the  Jawans  respond  with  equal  hilarity.


Ank  repertory  is delighted to have completed 46 years and pays homage to its Founder-Director  Mr.Dinesh  Thakur who was lost to us too soon.

For  Ank, theatre  is  not  just  a  source  of  entertainment,  it  also  serves  to  keep   history  alive,  to  propagate  and  emphasise  those  cultural  values  and  traditions  which  set  us  apart  and  identify  us  as  Indians  in  the  eyes  of  the  rest  of  the  world and  most  importantly to  raise  some  questions,  tickle  some  issues – almost  always tongue-in-cheek. Within  this  larger  framework,  Ank  believes that  it is theatre  which provides  respite  and  rejuvenation  to  any  society. For  Ank therefore,  theatre is serious  and  responsible  work  and  quality  the  cornerstone  of  its  belief.  

Ank  has  always  believed  in  quality  and  finesse  with  a larger  purpose.  It  has  always  been  our  endeavour  to  put  forward a thought,  a message  which  appeals  to  our  purer  sentiment  and  instincts,  bringing  out  the  best  in  us,  thus  contributing  in  evolving  better individuals  in  a more  sensitized  society.

An important aspect that  sets  Ank  apart  from  many  of  its theatre  contemporaries  is the  emphasis  here on  the  actor  and  his  abilities. All aspects  of  the  physical  body  are to  be  explored as   instruments  and  extensions  of  expression. In these  days,  when  colour  and  form  are   taking a precedence  over  realism  on  stage,  theatre  remains  for  us  the  Actor’s  medium. Starting  with  almost  non-existent  Hindi  theatre  audiences in Mumbai,  Ank  took  upon  itself  the  task  of  not  only  creating  a  regular  Hindi theatre-going  and  ticket buying  audience  but also  of  laying  the  foundations  and  holding  together  a  group  of  committed  and  dedicated  theatre  workers.  Today,  after  more than 46  years,  Ank’s  repetoire  has  run  the  entire gamut from  original  works  in  Hindi  to  the  best  in national  and  international  theatre, from  the  thought-provoking  and  the  serious  to  the  tragical,  from court-room  dramas and   the  hilarious  to   the  deeply  comical  and  outright  farcical.
Very unfortunately we lost our Founder Director, Dineshji in  September 2012. We are  determined   to  carry  on  his  awesome  legacy and  we  pray that we are  able  to  do  justice  to  it.

Theatre is ever exciting and the  challenge  today  is to innovate, explore and add to  a rich repertoire.

Having  come  into  being  in  1976  and  picked  up  momentum in 1978  with  the  emergence  of  Prithvi  theatre and  with  the  unforgettable  encouragement  from  Jennifer  Kapoor  and  Shri  Shashi  Kapoor,  Ank   today  has one  of  the  largest  bodies  of  work  in  Hindi  with  more than 7000  shows  of  85  productions  all  over  the  country  and  abroad.
