HOUSTON: Stellar performances by veteran actors Anupam Kher and Neena Gupta, in their comeback play, ‘Mera Woh Matlab Nahi Tha’, has earned them several accolades across the US and Canada, since its first sold out event in Houston on August 7. The name of the play speaks volumes about itself. The story, beautifully written and narrated by Rakesh Bedi, is crisp and fast-paced, without a single dull moment in the almost two-hour production.

Ashok Singhvi, Secretary, Mines & Petroleum attented the show in Connecticut.

Neena Gupta, playing a double role as Hema Roy (Preetam’s lover) and Nigaar (Preetam’s wife), flawlessly switches from one role and accent, depicting two very different roles with a corresponding array of emotions in both roles. Rakesh Bedi’s sporadic appearances as a casual jogger in the park brings lighter moments into the play. The audience bursts out laughing during Bedi’s short interruptions to the couple’s memory lane.
