Mumbai, April 23 (IANS) Actor Rajeev Khandelwal will make his theatre debut in the play “Court Martial”. He says essaying a character on stage is supremely challenging and it provides the ultimate validation for any actor.
“I think essaying a character on stage for theatre is supremely challenging and provides the ultimate validation for any actor. I have always envied actors who can entertain audience on stage. It was as good as one of the things in my ‘to do list’,” Rajeev said.
Zee Theatre’s teleplay “Court Martial” follows the unusual trial of a junior ranked army man convicted of murdering his senior officer. Rajeev plays the role of Bikash Roy, an extremely sharp defence lawyer who goes deep into the shocking truth behind the assault.
Talking about the play, the actor said: “‘Court Martial’ demanded an intensity that required me to work on myself and prep for the role. It is an intense and gripping play with a fabulously taut storytelling technique. This play is regarded as a classic in the world of theatre.”
Written by Swadesh Deepak, the play also stars Govind Pandey, Bhagwan Tiwari, Saksham Dayma and Swapnil Kotiwar.
