Mumbai: Filmmaker Rajkumar Hirani, who last directed the successful “PK” is now all set to produce his sister Anju Kishinchandani’s play “Growing Up” based on puberty.
Anju is quite excited to present her play in front of an audience.
“When I first heard Anju’s concept of the storyline, I was immediately hooked. I connected with the thought and was very impressed with it, purely as a creative person,” Hirani said in a statement.
The play is for 9+ audiences, but it will also keep adults rivetted and entranced.
Hirani, reportedly, loved the concept so much that he instantly asked her to take it forward and either transform into a play or a film.
Anju is a writer, trainer and a certified sex educator. Her core company has been dedicated to sex education across various age groups, offering structured workshops for children, pre-teens, teens, young adults and even parents.
The play is directed by well-known theatre actor, writer and director Trishla Patel.
With her workshops on puberty, Anju managed to reach out to a small section of kids and thus came about the idea for a play on the subject, through which she hopes to reach out to a larger number of kids pan India.
The play is set to take off at Godrej Dance Theatre, Nariman Point on Saturday followed by having show at Prithvi Theatre on June 6 and 7.
