Jackky Bhagnani, son of producer Vashu Bhagnani will make his debut on stage, in a play opposite “Dhobi Ghat” actor Prateik Babbar.
Jackky, who after featuring in the 2015 comedy “Welcome 2 Karachi”, turned producer with the Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Randeep Hooda-starrer “Sarbji”t, is now set for a stage debut with a play titled “Riddles” which revolves around a gay love story.
Written and directed by Jeff Goldberg, the play is centered around homosexuality. ‘Riddles’ is an adaptation of US playwright LB Hamilton’s play ‘A Midnight Clear.’
When speaking to Mirror, Jeff shared, “Prateik plays a wealthy man who owns an IPL team while Jackky’s character is a cricketer. The duo meets, falls in love and subsequently breaks up. When Prateik’s character meets with an accident, Jackky comes to his rescue, rekindling the romance.”
Jeff further added on the pleasure of working with Jackky: “As an actor, Jackky understands the challenge of the stage. Directing him has been a pleasure.”
Jeff is equally happy with his other protagonist. “Prateik is a consummate professional and a team player. He has put his heart and soul into the character and reinvented himself for the part”.
The play will be showcased in Mumbai on June 23-25 and then from June 30 to July 2
