Laugh Out Loud
A laugh riot all along. That’s the fitting description for Ashvin Gidwani Productions’ play Get Rid Of My Wife which was staged at the Hyatt Regency Pune on Saturday evening. The evening began with cocktails and conversations. As the curtain was raised,the eager audience readied itself for an hour of humour. The plot – how three friends,one visually challenged,one hearing impaired and the other speech impaired,avoid their creditors’ wrath by agreeing to kidnap a man’s wife. The cast – Balvinder Singh Suri,Jayesh Thakkar,Paritosh Painter,Delnaaz Irani,Nasir Khan,Kishwar Merchant and Nilanjana Singh – wowed the audience with their comic timing. The play has been directed by Painter. Kudos to the team for a super performance. Spotted enjoying the play were Senior Supreme Court lawyer Ram Jethmalani,actresses Kimi Katkar Sheorey and Divya Shah,and Nikhil and Richa Agarwal among others. The evening ended with a sumptuous buffet spread.
