Goshta Tashi Gamtichi, Perfect Mismatch, Don’t worry be happy: all these popular plays have one thing in common – they have all been produced by Sonal Productions. It has made a name for itself within a short span of time. At a recently held party at a Dadar hall, for celebrating the success of the play Goshta Tashi Gamtichi, an exciting announcement was made – ‘Goshta Tashi Gamtichi’ will soon have a sequel!
The program began with Leena Bhagwat sharing her thoughts and expressing her gratitude and satisfaction on the success of the play. Mangesh Kadam also thanked Sonal productions for backing his screenplay to the hilt. Then, an extraordinary precedent of honoring backstage artists was set at the event. Backstage artist are an important cog in the wheel of a play but their value is hardly acknowledged. Post this ceremony, backstage artist would be respected more, hopefully. Kamal Shedge, Samir Hampi and Satish Khoutode were honored at the event.
Sonal Productions started their journey with an orchestra called ‘Ankhiyon Ke Jharokon Se’ in 2013. The beauty of the orchestra is that all of its members are blind. Then on 3rd August, 2014 they staged the play ‘Goshta Tashi Gamtichi’. The play starring Leena Bhagwat, Mangesh Kadam and Shashank Ketkar has done 311 shows till now!
