‘Theater great leveller’

Veteran actress Shabana Azmi says theater is a great leveller because it eschews hierarchy.
Shabana has performed in theate shows like Safed Kundali and Tumhari Amrita along with veteran Farooq Sheikh. She has been acclaimed with several National Awards for her acting skills.
“I consider myself a film actor but have found working in theater very rewarding. Playing the lead at National Theatre London for Tanika Gupta’s The Waiting Room was so humbling. Walking to work, doing my own laundry. Theater is a great leveller because it eschews hierarchy,” Shabana tweeted on the occasion of the World Theatre Day March 27.
Shabana’s parents are Kaifi Azmi, an Indian poet, and Shaukat Azmi, a veteran Indian People’s Theatre Association stage actress. IANS
