HT: Would be great if I get to perform theatre in Miranda House – Minissha Lamba

6th September 2018

Actress Minissha Lamba, an alumna of DU’s Miranda House, is set to make her theatre debut in the capital with the play Mirror Mirror.

During her college days in Delhi University’s Miranda House, actress Minissha Lamba never endeavored theatre. But now, she’s all set to make her debut in theatre with the play Mirror Mirror, in Delhi. In her recent interview with Hindustan Times, she talks about her days in Miranda house – “It would be great. Miranda has a huge auditorium. But that has to be after college hours. And the entire college will have to be interested to stay back, and not run away like how I used to,” says Lamba.

About the play, she said – “While rehearsing for the play, there are a few instances, very simple ones of everyday life that I could relate with my real life. Like when you are growing up, siblings hate each other and make their parents’ life hell. Then miraculously there comes a point when we become adults and start loving and caring for each other.”

Did she take a cue from her real life for this show? “I have a brother [in real life]; the relationship between female siblings is very different compared to a sister-brother rivalry. While rehearsing for the play, there are a few instances, very simple ones of everyday life that I could relate with my real life. Like when you are growing up, siblings hate each other and make their parents’ life hell. Then miraculously there comes a point when we become adults and start loving and caring for each other. And then your parents think ‘Okay, you could have done this 15 years earlier and made everyone’s life peaceful’. But, that’s not how it goes,” says Lamba, adding that she isn’t a “method actress”.
