Yesterday’s show witnessed many theatre buffs from Bengaluru. Except for balcony, all the 821 seats were occupied and the audience was spellbound throughout.

During the second show of the play which was held yesterday, Kalamandira was almost full. Speaking to Star of Mysore this morning, Rangayana Director Addanda C. Cariappa said, “There are almost hundred plus characters in this play. We have had a huge challenge of managing all those characters with just 30 to 35 actors, which is certainly very demanding on their part. In fact, most of our actors have played multiple roles. We have really worked hard and put a lot of effort for this show.  Now, it seems that all our efforts have paid off.”

Director of National School of Drama (NSD) of Bengaluru C. Basavalingaiah, Chairman of Mysore Paints and Varnish Limited N.V. Phaneesh, Chairman of Karnataka Sahitya Academy Dr. B.V. Vasanth Kumar, renowned Bharathanatyam artiste Dr. Tulasi Ramachandra and others watched the play on stage yesterday.
