About Play : It is Indias longest running comedy. It has more than 400 shows to its credit. It is Indias Marathon play. No guesses. It is Pierrots Troupes Ghalib In Delhi hugely popular, highly acclaimed and widely travelled.
This rip-roaring comedy has the great erstwhile Urdu poet, Mirza Ghalib, revisiting his beloved Dehli, now ironically Delhi, in 2016 to witness and relish his posthumous fame.
The entire plot revolves around Ghalib striving against an omnipotent identity crisis, beginning with the occupants of his Haveli mistaking him as Ghalibs Jinn. This forces him to stay with a Bihari boy, Jai Hind, a Delhi University student, in a servant quarter. His confidence is further shattered when Jai Hind and his landlady Mrs. Chaddha recognize his worth only through the voice of Jagjit Singh, and the screen portrayal of Naseeruddin Shah. Persuaded by the duo and in desperate need of recognition, Ghalib decides to sell himself. The consequent press conference turns out to be a damp squib with the journalists being more interested in post-conference snacks and juicy headlines. Ghalib then opts for an advertising agency to perpetuate his presence in the minds of the people. What is the fate of Ghalib? Does his rebirth spell further disaster? Is Delhi a mere travesty of his hopes and aspirations?
