Main Lead of the play Ashwin Sharma won the Best Actor for Taj Mahal ka Tender. In addition to this, the Play was selected to be one of the Best plays too in Maharashtra Rajya Natya-2019. We are presenting once again, the brilliant and Phenomenal Play.
More than two decades back, Ajay Shukla's “TajMahal Ka Tender” has won its writer both the Sahitya Kala Parishad the Mohan Rakesh Samman. Since then, the play has seen countless performances all over. Its biting wit throws a powerful punch, and remains, despite the passage of years, both relevant and well-loved.
The story of Taj Mahal’s construction, the play begins at the point when Emperor Shah Jahan first decides to build a monument to commemorate his Begum, Mumtaz Mahal. While it uses a contemporary context, one that’s fraught with corruption, red tape and bureaucratic power play. The play explores the construction in the light of these issues. With every delay and every bribe, the play reminds us of our reality, and even as it uses slapstick comedy and situational comedy to elicit laughs, it doesn’t lose its darker context.
