It is India’s longest running comedy. It has 490 shows to its credit. It is India’s Marathon play. No guesses. It is Pierrot’s Troupe’s Ghalib In New Delhi – hugely popular, highly acclaimed and widely travelled, launched way back in 1997.

Featuring: Dr M Sayeed Alam -  Mirza Ghalib: Jaskiran Chopra – Mrs Chadhdha  & Paanwali

Himanshu Srivastava: – Sharabi: Manish Kumar – Jainhind & Advt Executive:   Yashraj Malik – Delhi Police:  Aryan Pratap Singh – Auto Wala:  Tanay Tarany - Rickshaw Wala

This rip-roaring comedy has the great erstwhile Urdu poet, Mirza Ghalib, revisiting his beloved ‘Dehli’, now ironically ‘Delhi’, in 2017 to witness and relish his posthumous fame. 

The entire plot revolves around Ghalib striving against an omnipotent identity crisis, beginning with the occupants of his ‘Haveli’ mistaking him as Ghalib’s ‘Jinn’. This forces him to stay with a young man, Jai Hind, from Bihar who is also a Delhi University student, in a servant quarter. His confidence is further shattered when Jai Hind and his landlady Mrs. Chaddha recognize his worth only through the voice of Jagjit Singh, and the screen portrayal of Naseeruddin Shah. Persuaded by the duo and in desperate need of recognition, Ghalib decides to ‘sell’ himself.

The consequent press conference turns out to be a damp squib with the journalists being more interested in post-conference snacks and juicy headlines. Ghalib then opts for an advertising agency to perpetuate his presence in the minds of the people. What is the fate of Ghalib? Does his rebirth spell further disaster? Is Delhi a mere travesty of his hopes and aspirations? The answer lies in watching Ghalib in New Delhi, a laugh riot posing some serious questions about the stagnating codes.
