Actor Namit Das recently performed on the 10th anniversary of the play Stories In A Song at Prithvi Theatre in the city, and the experience send him down memory lane.
“I dived into theatre when I was in college and I was immediately captivated by the world of artistes. I had often watched plays in Prithvi, so the first time that I went backstage it hit me that the roles had reversed. I felt like I belonged there and acting became a constant since then,” he reminisced, while speaking to IANS.
Namit, who has had a stint on stage before foraying the screen, is glad that the world of theatre is seeing revival after the lockdown lull of last year.
“It has been a challenging year for theatre and I am glad that the cultural pulse of the entertainment industry has been resuscitated. Prithvi theatre has honed art and been a school to the greats in the industry. Performing live on the 10th anniversary of Stories In A Song is truly special,” he said.
Namit has been a part of Bollywood projects such as such as Wake Up Sid (2009), Sui Dhaaga (2018), Patakha (2018) and the digitally-released film, A Suitable Boy.
He made his mark last year with his roles in the web series Aarya and Mafia. –ians/ym/vnc
