Manhar Gadhia Productions is known for its series of Monologues since last few years has churned new monologues keeping its tradition of getting new writers, directors, actors to Gujarati floorboards. Manhar Gadhia, who is known to give opportunities to all the youngsters and challenge the veterans in the industry with ideas they have never explored earlier. He took one more step in the similar direction. While his last new monologue was performed at the Prithvi Carnival, the subject was “Radha”, which gave birth to two things thought of Krishna became more intrigue and while working with Manasi Parekh Gohil he found a talent beyond her performance as a director. Gadhia says “Working on scripts and getting it to life has become passion and to tell the story in 15mins is more challenge than a full length play where you have 2hrs and so the form of monologues entices me more”. Thus, Gadhia asked Mihir Bhuta, whose research and mythological knowledge brought to life monologues of characters who mattered in the life of “Krishna” i.e. Sudhama, Rukmini, Arjun, Yashoda, Draupadi and Radha. This time Manasi performs her monologue of “Radha” and at the same time directs the monologue of “Rukmini” to which Manasi says (9820065286). All the monologues take you through the journey of the respective characters relationship with Krishna and at the same time tell you more about the point of view they had towards their relationship. This 7 monolouges also have dance part (Choreography by Trupti Thakkar) and live Music (Music director Uday Mazumdar) as added attraction.
