Atul Kumar is bringing Piya Behrupiya to Bangalore once more. “Piya Behrupiya”, a Hindi musical hailed as one of the most entertaining adaptations of Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night, is coming to Ranga Shankara as a part of its 15th birthday celebrations. There will be five shows of the play. Tickets are available at Ranga Shankara Box Office an bookmyshow. Ranga Shankara’s 15th birthday celebrations is supported by Total Environment Homes.

After the standing ovations and critical acclaim in Globe, the play has continued its dream run in India and abroad. It has been among the most popular shows in Ranga Shankara. The cast of the play include talented actors like Geetanjali Kulkarni, Mansi Multani, Neha Saraf, Titas Dutta, Sudheer Rikhari, Mantra Mugdha, Saurabh Nayyar, Gagandev Singh Riar and Dhruv Lohumi.
