    Sarmad Khoosat says theatre is the platform through which you can express yourself more freely than in a political rally, by creating a story and dialogue. He was talking exclusively to Naya Daur.

    •  Theatre, or any other medium of storytelling,
    •  is certainly very important because through them
    •  you tell stories around you and the ones inside you
    •  It also happens that when you look at something
    •  you’ve gone through
    •  from another person’s point of view,
    •  you understand a lot of things about your own life
    •  If you look at theatre’s history,
    •  it has even contributed to revolutions
    •  You can say things at a theatre that you can’t in a rally
    •  with the help of a story and dialogue
    •  Other visual mediums, mainly cinema and TV,
    •  include many other techniques and ingredients
    •  but theatre is always dialogue-heavy,
    •  almost always, in the kind of theatre we practice today
    •  So dialogue too is very important in life
    •  I feel that we’ve stopped listening to people
    •  We just want to speak and impose our opinions
    •  We listen to others only to pass our remarks in response
    •  But in theatre, even when you’re saying a wrong thing,
    •  there’s another character that corrects you, through dialogue
    •  If you’re saying the right thing, you’d have to create
    •  a conflict or a conversation with another character
    •  So theatre promotes dialogue
    •  and I think an exercise in dialogue is important for us all
    •  Moreover, we don’t have many outlets for entertainment
    •  so definitely theatre is entertaining,
    •  and it’s very real also
    •  I think, for me, as an actor,
    •  nothing can match the experience of working at theatre
