Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Entertainment - Yashika Mathur

Ac­tor Rasika Du­gal (left) has planned a das­tan­goi per­for­mance — an art of sto­ry­telling with­out the use of props, en­tries or ex­its — for the cast of her next, which is helmed by film­maker Nan­dita Das. Rasika, who will be nar­rat­ing the das­taan, feels her team will thor­oughly en­joy the per­for­mance.

“When I used to be a ‘Das­tango’ (sto­ry­teller), there was this das­taan (story) on Manto called Man­toiyat. It is a beau­ti­ful piece of writ­ing and it was one of my favourite das­taans. I re­vis­ited it dur­ing my prepa­ra­tion for the film and I feel it is a piece that ev­ery­one work­ing on the film must watch,” says Rasika.

The ac­tor will be plan­ning an evening for the cast and crew of the film, soon af­ter wrap­ping up the shoot of the film. She feels that her team would be able to con­nect with her per­for­mance due to the sub­ject she has cho­sen.

In her next, she plays the wife of Urdu play­wright and au­thor Saa­dat Hasan Manto.
