Rumi is the Shah Rukh Khan of social media! Manto, an outcast all his life is now in! The euphoria around them in the last two decades, has made them literary pop-icons. Once upon a time, Bombay 2017, Rumi and Manto bump into each other at a Lit-Fest, in the company of Karan Johar and Chetan Bhagat. They are curious about the world’s new found love for them. Mantos visiting from hell, assumingly, and Rumi from heaven. Manto is angry and Rumi is accepting and amused as well, more by Manto.
Rumi Aur Manto (RaM), a solo performance by Mohit Sharma, is a comic and sarcastic look at the society we all form. It also attempts to understand as to what it takes to be an artiste through the works of these two Greats! RaM is 25+ shows old in two years, with housefull and standing ovations in Bombay, Bangalore & Jammu!
