“Rang Savaari”, as we ride along the ‘Kala Ghoda’, we will this year showcase some of the best talent of the country! This is Juuhi Babbar Sonii’s 4th year as curator of the theatre section. JBS is the recipient of the Ustad Bismillah Khan Yuva Puruskaar, the highest national award for the youth towards body of work in theatre. With a lineage like her’s and more than 15yrs in the profession, she has definitely been an asset to the KGAF Theatre Act!
From folk theatre hailing from Rural India to the most swanky, performances studded with stars, Juuhi Babbar Sonii has got all of it under Kala Ghoda theatre roof.
Juuhi Babbar Sonii very humbly credits her zeal and dedication to the festival director, Brinda Miller.
Her theatre volunteers are a bunch of passionate theatre aspirants led by her Associate Curator of 4 years, Ankur Parekh. This team has four years of amazing success to its credit. 2017, being Juuhi Babbar Sonii’s 4th turn as curator of this most vibrant section of the Kala Ghoda Festival… We wish Juuhi Babbar Sonii many more housefuls and roaring applauses.
