    He has brought plays like Krishan VS KanhaiyaA� to Chennai and now actor and theatre artist Paresh Rawal gives us Dear Father. With five actors, the play is an emotional thriller. a�?When one of the main characters dies, no one knows if it is a murder, suicide or an accident. Besides all this, it has elements of comedy as well,a�? says Rawal. Playing a double role in the play, he adds, a�?a�?the play requires two roles and there is a reason behind it. Doing a double role in movies is easy but to do justice to it on stage is difficult.a�?

    The play premiered in Mumbai and has already done around 296 shows in different parts of the country. a�?The audience in Chennai has always been intelligent and hungry for entertainment so I expect them to come to the play and to think beyond theusual and learn something new,a�? he says. At a time when theatre directors are experimenting with several themes and genres, Rawal is happy with what he is doing. a�?I do not want to do a musical, I cannot sing. But even otherwise, I want to do plays that have drama and an Indian connection. Dear Father is a very personal play and it reflects a lot of things that I went through and what I have seen around me,a�? he shares, revealing that he is also working on one untitled film project.
