"The festival will also bring an array of artists like Tannishtha Chatterjee, Zeeshan Ayub, Neil Bhoopalam and Anuvab Pal. It is a true representative of the Mumbai spirit," Gahlot said.

The festival will have famous Bollywood/theatre actor Pankaj Kapur in the play "Dreamz-Sehar" that deals with life in a dream, reality and also imagination.

There will also be "Raat Na Aaye", based on Eugine O'Neil's "Long Day's Journey into Night" and "Facial, Pedicures and Mind Masala" starring Tannishtha Chatterjee.

The play titled, "Phir Se Shaadi" will take audiences on a humorous quest with Sheeba, who is looking to re-marry her husband after a talaaq.

Another highlight of the festival is the multi-lingual production "Dohri Zindagi", directed by Gurleen Judge. It is a love story in a homophobic society.

For Gujarati theatre lovers, there will be "Do Deewane Shaher Mein", a story about a young couple with high aspirations.
