The Guild of Actors of SPJIMR (GASP) celebrated the significant milestone of completing two decades of excellence in theatre with their annual play “Bloodline”. SPJIMR Dean Varun Nagaraj flagged off the event in his inimitable style by sharing anecdotes about his acting aspirations and Hollywood dreams.
Eminent theatre personality Nadira Babbar, founder of Ekjute Theatre Group and recipient of the 2001 Sangeet Natak Akademi Award graced the occasion as the chief guest. Nadiraji interacted with the audience in an engaging Q&A session and shared insights from her rich experience in theatre and films as writer, director and actor.
Bloodline opened to a packed house, thanks to all the excitement and buzz created by GASP’s meticulously planned offline and online marketing activities. The highly anticipated play lived up to its promise and enthralled the audiences with its thought-provoking plot exploring the intricacies of human emotions, family bonds, and relationships. The evocative writing was brilliantly supported by captivating performances, inspiring art direction and costume designs showcasing the diverse talents of our participants.
