Anjan Dutt, famous actor, director and singer-songwriter from India first brought out this play or Talk Theater as an album along with the band-Parash Pathar more than 10 years back. We have adapted it to today’s time and age to make it more relatable. However, we have not altered the central theme of the play i.e. the quest for our roots which is all the more relevant for migrant Bengalis like us.
