The show goes on


This di­arist hap­pened to at­tend a show of 07/07/07, based on the prison ac­counts of a young Irani girl, Rey­haneh Jab­bari. Di­rected by Faezeh Jalali, the play was the win­ner of the Best En­sem­ble Cast at the META awards in 2016, and a small hic­cup dur­ing the performance — which this di­arist learnt of only when a fel­low au­di­ence mem­ber told her about a post-show chat he had with one of the ac­tors — proved why it de­served the award. Ac­tor Su­ruchi Au­lakh, while wait­ing back­stage, suf­fered a mi­nor in­jury and couldn’t make her en­try as planned. The play went on un­in­ter­rupted, while she took some time to gather her­self be­fore mak­ing her way back into the play again, seam­lessly. The show, as they say, must go on. And it did.

Ac­tor Malaika Arora opts for a bi­cy­cle as her mode of trans­port, in Ban­dra yes­ter­day.
