Mahatma Gandhi, the Father of the Indian Nation, is synonymous with ahimsa and satya. One wonders who was the inspiration behind him. Gandhiji placed Shrimad Rajchandraji as foremost amongst those he considered his inspiration. Shrimadji's direct interaction and His letters, both played a pivotal role in shaping Gandhiji's character and kindled in him the novel idea of using ahimsa to attain independence.
'Yugpurush - the play' is a heart-touching portrayal of this special bond between Shrimadji and Gandhiji that catapulted him from 'Mohandas' to 'Mahatma'. What began as friendship, progressed to Gandhiji's proclamation of Shrimadji as his spiritual mentor.
Commemorating Shrimadji's 150th Birth Anniversary, this theatrical presentation has garnered great accolades throughout its one-year journey. 'Yugpurush' received two distinct entries into the Limca Book of Records in 2017; for being a single play translated into the maximum number of languages (seven) and a single play performing the maximum number of shows in one single day - 10 shows of one drama in one day. The play also won the highly coveted Dadasaheb Phalke Excellence Award 2017 for 'Best Play' and the Transmedia Gujarati Screen & Stage Award 2016 for 'Best Drama', 'Best Director' and 'Best Supporting Actor'.
The play has been a universal triumph; with more than 1,050 performances in one year, presented in 7 different languages, winning the hearts of over 675,000 viewers of all ages, professions and backgrounds; and spanning over 300 cities around the globe!
Come witness this spectacular and life changing tribute to these two great souls!
