In this production Rasaka aimed to honor the intention of telling a canonical, Western through a uniquely South Asian lens; we did so with an authentic representation of the South Asian community.
The goal in producing this project was as follows: to produce a story with a uniquely desi twist, and to share the pure joy of Bollywood with the truly global audience that Chicago represents.
“…a blend of Eastern and Western acting styles and fashions, multiracial casting, and the occasional out-of-nowhere dance sequence capture the tumult and ambiguity of the main plot.”
“Director Lavina Jadhwani and her design team bring clever ideas to the table.”
