The comedy play Hello Darling was staged last week in Surat, one of the eight largest cities in Gujarat state and famous for its cuisine, textile and diamonds. The fourth fastest growing city of the world had a field day from their work schedule with an enjoyable fare.
Once again the real and reel life siblings created history and left an impact by leaving their footprints with their first performance in Surat. Cousins Shaad Randhawa and Vindu Dara Singh rubbed shoulders together for the first time on stage for Hello Darling. The dramatic actors who are celebrities in their own right took things one step further with their wackier and hilarious performance. Seeing them perform together takes you down the memory lane of their luminarious and illustrious fathers who were brothers themselves; viz Sardar Singh Randhawa and Dara Singh, the two versatile actors and our country’s loved champion wrestlers who had made their presence felt during their regime.
Shaad Randhawa made his Bollywood debut as an actor with Mohit Suri’s Woh Lamhe, followed by Dhoom Dhadakka, Awarapan, Aashiqui 2, Ek Villain and Mastizaade. Senior Vindu Dara Singh, the Bigg Boss 3 winner and last seen with Ajay Devgn in Son Of Sardaar and other films and TV series. Together their repartee was sharp and witty rushing the audience’s adrenaline who was roaring with laughter. Both the seasoned actors had the audience in splits with their comic timings.
The phenomenal satire connected with comedy and laughter with social conventions. The super hit recitals have made people of Surat scream for more. What was supposed to be a one show event has enforced the production house to stage a second show in the city shortly. Thereafter the team will proceed further to Delhi and Jaipur.
The hilarious play too has an ensemble of talented cast featuring Sheeba, Payal Goga Kapoor and Vibha Bhagat. The rib-tickler is produced and directed by Yogesh Sanghvi under the production house, Variations, Hello Darling is a play which most married couples will co-relate with. It is a drama between a husband and wife. The message that carries with this show is that a married couple should trust each other and should not be unfaithful.—- Sanjay Sharma Raj (P.R.O.)
