The actor has come on board for an upcoming play titled 36 Ghante, a unique show in which he will come to know about the director and play only 12 hours prior to the performance. The play titled 36 Ghante has 10 writers write a play which will then be picked at random by 10 directors, each getting 12 hours to make and put together a production.
It will be staged in Mumbai by the end of this month. Vicky said in a statement, “This play is called 36 Ghante. I felt conceptually, this play is very exciting because it will happen only this one time only, this one night, and it is not going to be repeated ever.”
“The concept is that the actors are going to come to know of the co-actors, script, director only 12 hours before the show. In those 12 hours they have to prepare the play. That, for me, was very exciting to take part in,” he added.
The initiative is by Rage Productions, and is also a fund raiser for theatre where all the collections received from the tickets will be given to the people working backstage. “The collection is going to be distributed among people who get the set ready, make-up artists, costume people, the dress dada and everyone. We don’t know who they are, but they are also pillars in theatre apart from the actors, directors and writers,” says
Vicky, who has just finished shooting for Raazi, in which he will be seen opposite Alia Bhatt. He also has a pivotal role in Sanjay Dutt biopic.
