Lights, Camera, Action! The next big Hindi blockbuster Isaq Banaraswala is being shot on the Banaras Ghats. Two locals, Mosambi and Narangi, are thrilled at being cast in this epic film. The glitz and glamour of Bollywood have always been a part of their dreams. Now they have the chance to be in an actual potboiler, to sing & dance with the beautiful and famous heroine Sabrina, to fight the goondas, to become reel-life heroes! But they are only two extras trapped and stuck on the set...in continuity!

 As our two innocent protagonists struggle to understand the functioning of the Hindi film business, the make-believe glamour of Bollywood quickly fades away and the reality of being an extra kicks in.

The uniqueness of this play is that there are only two actors on stage who play all the characters ( men and women ), switching gender, age and voice with swift dexterity and the absolute bare minimum of costume changes.

Mosambi Narangi, adapted from the award-winning Stones In His Pockets, is a comic yet poignant take on the effects of the great Bollywood Dream on a small town.
