Classic play sequel!
Another sequel of the hit Marathi play ‘Goshta tashi Gamtichi’ is on the cards.

Chandra, Aadesh Bandekar, Anant Jog, Bhau Kadam, Sagar Karande – graced the occasion. This popular play starring Mangesh Kadam and Leena Bhagwat received a very good response from Marathi drama lovers, as the subject of this play dealt with a father-son dispute, over selection of a suitable career for the son. Now, in the sequel the same dispute is carried forward, but in a more dramatic manner. Well-known Advaitjee Dadarkar will continue as a director of the sequel as well. Producer Nandu Kadam will also be producing the sequel, while Mihir Rajda will expand on the story.
