‘Typecaste’ is unsettling story: Aaditi Pohankar

‘Typecaste’ is unsettling story: Aaditi Pohankar

New Delhi, Oct 7 (UNI) Zee Theatre is all set to premiere teleplay 'Typecaste,' featuring actors Aaditi Pohankar and Shreyas Talpade.

In 1977, iconic playwright Vijay Tendulkar wrote a Marathi play, 'Pahije Jatiche' about widespread caste-based discrimination in academic circles and society at large and its theme does not seem dated even today. ‘Typecaste’ is the Hindi adaptation of Tendulkar’s play.

Aaditi feels that Tendulkar's writing unfailingly exposed societal fault lines.

"Typecaste' reveals the prejudices that are still prevalent in society and it is unfortunate that we still read headlines about caste-based discrimination and oppression every day. Good art reflects society, and Tendulkar always held up a mirror to entrenched biases. This is an unsettling and yet important story that must be told again and again,” Aaditi said in a statement.

Aaditi who has carved a niche for herself in the OTT space with success stories like 'She' and 'Aashram' continues to be passionate about theatre and added, "Zee Theatre is such a gift for actors like me because through teleplays like 'Typecaste', it enables us to stay in touch with literary masterpieces and the creative discipline that only a theatrical performance can instil in you."

In the teleplay, Aaditi plays the love interest of the protagonist Mahipat Babruvahan (Shreyas) who becomes the first achiever from his community and village to complete his MA degree. Success, however, continues to evade him and he is not only fired from his current job despite being worthy of a raise but his new role as a professor puts his patience to test as he is constantly belittled and undermined.

Filmed by Sourabh Shrivastava, 'Typecaste' also stars Atul Mathur and Utkarsh Mazumdar.
