The super successful play had an Hindi adaptation too and film-maker Ashutosh Gowariker had convinced Paresh Raval to accept the offer, “It was originally a Marathi play called Katkon Trikon. I did the Gujarati version. Ashutosh saw it and told me he wanted to turn it into a film. The Marathi play happened a long time ago but the Gujarati and Hindi versions are still being staged. We have completed more than 500 shows.”
A play that has been successful in three languages – Hindi, Gujarati and Marathi and has been remade as a Marathi film is now on its way to being made as a Gujarati film.
Dear Father revolves around the delicate issue of generation gap, ideological confrontations and the emotional struggles of a middle class family.
