A theatre comeback for Divya Drishti actors
TV actors Imran Khan and Vaishnavi Macdonald, working together on StarPlus’ show, Divya Drishti, have been roped in to be a part of a stage play, Murder of God, together. The two have been friends for years.
The two actors have been around in the industry for over a decade and have won accolades, love and appreciation for their effortless performances on the small screen. Not many know but the two started with their Bollywood careers together when, in 1993, they debuted as two lovers opposite each other in Anil Sharma’s Karamveer. This was the first time the two faced the camera and were introduced to the industry.
On her experience of working with Imran, Vaishnavi shares, “Imran has been a lovely co-star and a great friend for a long time. We share a lot of time together on the sets of Divya Drishti and I’ve often seen him rehearse for his theatre performances. When I was told about the plot of this play, I was ready without any hesitance. Of course, having Imran already there was a big plus.”
Imran Khan also could not resist and shared his excitement on his Divya Drishti -star and friend Vaishnavi joining him. “We started our journey to films and television together with Karamveer where we learned a lot and had great fun. We still look at us in that movie and share a laugh. Theatre although requires great enthusiasm and chemistry between the actors performing it and sharing the stage with Vaishnavi would surely be an enhancement to it.”
Murder of God is a satirical comedy play which highlights the misuse of conventions in the name of God. Watch these two actors share a same platform and kill it with their exceptional acting skills.
Watch the two on Divya Drishti every Saturday and Sunday at 7 pm on StarPlus!
