About the play, Sir Sir Sarla' is a Hindi play about the love of two university students for their teacher, philosopher, and guide, Professor Palekar.
The director and writer of the play, Makrand Deshpande, essays the role of the professor and Sarla (Aahana Kumra) plays the role of the student who loves the Professor in an ardent, romantic manner.
The boy, Phanidhar (Sanjay Dadhich) is the underdog who shares a love-hate relationship with the Professor. The lives of the three are thus strongly interwoven.
Sanjay Dadhich and Aahana Kumra have replaced the earlier stars, while Makrand reprises the main role. The play has been made in Hindi as well as Gujarati to reach out to a wider audience in Mumbai.
