After studying theatre in USC and starring as the lead in the Hollywood movie Bully High opposite Arnold Shwazzeneger’s son, Aneesha Madhok is back in her hometown Delhi and will be seen in the musical “Ananda” directed by Muzaffar Ali.
Talking about the musical play Aneesha says,”The entire experience has helped expand my worldview of art with a conglomeration of calmness, creativity and receptibility.
Muzaffar Ali Sir’s aura keeps me in awe of him. He is a royal artist not because of his name but because of his his ability to surrender to art beyond limitations. Any words I say are not enough to do justice to Muzaffar Ji. I am so grateful!”
As we all know, musicals have big success in the past and India is still at a nascent level so what kind of feedback does Aneesha expect from Ananda. She says,”I feel India is picking up! I have studied at the prestigious University of Southern California and am brining back all my learnings of live performance with singing, dancing and acting. Let’s make the standards of art higher in our country, especially with regards to the talent representing our country.”
On asking about her grandeur look in the musical play Aneesha says,”
Elegance is a state of mind. Elegance cannot be bought that’s all I can say.” All her outfits in the play are designed by Sama Ali and Meera Ali.
Aneesha is playing the role of Jhumki, who’s a young seductress as she encounters the spiritual enlightenment seeking Ananda.
Noted actor and the owner of baritone voice Kabir Bedi is the narrator of the play. Speaking about him Aneesha says,”I first met him at Jaipur polo grounds in New Delhi with my Italian friends who are his huge fans. He is very kind, gracious and admired globally. It is an honor to be a part of this production with Mr. Bedi.”
