After a Hindi film debut in Kundan Shah’s 1994 romcom Kabhi Haan Kabhi Naa, Suchitra Krishnamoorthi headed to the small screen with the miniseries Kash-m-Kash two years later, only to return with Jijy Philip’s 2005 Anil Kapoor starrer, My Wife’s Murder. Six years after her last screen turn in Ram Gopal Varma’s Rann, the 40-year-old actress-singer is staging an acting comeback with a play.
Titled Drama Queen, it is directed by Inaayat Ali Sami and is based on her eponymous 2013 autobiography. Interestingly, the play also features anecdotes from the book, including Suchitra’s proposals to filmmakers Karan Johar and Ram Gopal Varma, and has her sister, Sujata Kumar, playing her mother. It also features Suchitra Pillai as a shrink, Suresh Menon as RGV, and filmmakers Nagesh Kukunoor and Ken Ghosh as her love interests.
