Many movies have shot two to three different endings and climax sequences and decided which one to add in their projects at the last minute. It’s a common practice in Hollywood to shoot two movie endings, take the opinions of focus groups and a cross section of people and retain the one more accepted. Bollywood too has caught up with a similar trend off late.
But what surprises us now is that Kashmira Shah’s latest play Tere Ghar Ke Samne has adopted a similar practice, albeit with a difference. Over a few summer Sundays spread across weeks, Kash’s play has been running to packed houses at various theatre outlets, while experimenting with not two, but three different endings. Almost every week, the viewers get to see a different climax of her play. Whoa!
What’s more! What started as a one-off experiment is now becoming the norm. “Earlier we thought we’d do this for a couple of weeks and then stick to the end the audiences find the best. But this experimenting process gets the actors and audiences alike so kicked, that we are continuing with it,” reveals Kashmira Shah.
Thanks to this, a select percentage of audiences have even returned for an extra round of the play, just to see how it will end in their second outing. We are often amazed how you manage to begin such whacky trends Kash, but it’s cool as long as you continue to amuse and entertain. More power to you and your wackiness girl!
