Cast: Puja Sarup, Priyanka Setia, Rytasha Rathore, Chakori Dwivedi, Shruti Vyas, Saurabh Nayyar and Shubam Chowdhury. In one of the oldest Chudail Gharanas, it is a special evening. It's Dyana's birthday and a Shikaar is mandatory for a chudail on this special occasion and the rest of the family is getting ready to celebrate their lives of sisterhood and hunting in subterfuge. An evening of fun is suddenly interrupted by a government official who brings with him a strange mandate. He is here to free the neighborhood of all Chudails, as they are ‘anti-society, anti-national and anti-unity’. For its the free spirit and independent minded women that threaten a fascist society the most. Afraid to betray their identity, the Chudails decide to pacify him by undergoing his training program. Seeds of doubt, accusations, and misinformation are sowed as the witches go on a witch hunt themselves. This dark comedy show will have the audience in splits, but also very spooked! Tickets at Rs.500, Rs.350 and Rs.200 available at the venue for IHC Members only from Sept 1 - 5. Open to all from Sept 6 on bookmyshow.com and at the Programmes desk, IHC .
