Project Brief

In her first musical, Mayuri interprets the famed Harivanshrai Bachchan’s poetry epic Madhushala and showcases on stage the feelings poeticised in the book on the occasion of Amitabh Bachchan’s 70th birthday celebration.



Inspired by the sufi incantations and the philosophical undertones of the book, she explores the subject of human complexity. Featuring conteporary dance and Indian dance forms like Theyyam, Mohiyattam, Kamsaale and Dollu Kunith, 80 artistes comprising actors, dancers and aerial artists, presented this musical to a standing ovation in Reliance Film City, Mumbai.
