The Siddhus of Upper Juhu (2015)

A hilarious comedy about an average middle class couple, Balvinder aka Bubbles Siddhu and his Parsi wife Behroze, who struggle to survive in the mad city of Mumbai. Bubbles, a well-paid financial executive, is on the brink of a breakdown. Things get worse when his company goes through rough times and he gets fired. And then his apartment is burgled and the robbers take not only all his clothes, but his precious Black Label as well. He becomes a middle-aged corporate man on the prowl with crazy plans and paranoia.

The play opened at the Aadyam festival in 2015 and has since travelled to major Indian cities including opening the prestigious Hindu Festival in Chennai. It has also toured the UAE.
