Acting comes under the umbrella of performing arts. The actors perform on stage/cinema to entertain the public,but the audience is unaware about their real life experiences. They idolise the actors and forget that these actors too have a human side. An actor’s life may be diametrically opposite to the character played in a play/film. Reel life vs real life. This story exhibits the emotional aspects of the real life of an award-winning theatre artist, Meghna Sahay through a retrospective narrative. The poems mentioned in this story are an original artwork of the author.
Devika went live recently for an exclusive interview with Cherry Book Awards in which she talked her heart out about Meghana and many more topics. Here is the video:
