The play was also the subject of a well-known Marathi film Aanhahat directed by Amol Palekar starring Ananth Nag and Sonali Bendre a few years back. The play Suryasthadinda Suryodayadavarage  is a journey through one night — the night of niyog (a practice of selecting a mate for a woman incapable of conceiving from her husband) and the upheaval it brings in the  lives of impotent king and the queen intertwined by a common fate when the queen is forced to undergo niyog against her wishes by the governing council.
