A play by D.L. Roy in bengali
The year was 1658. Frail, Old ShahJahan was
convalescing from his serious illness and his sons were ready in arms to
capture the throne. Only Jahanara is looking after him, always, as the
most devoted daughter, fearless in her sense of right and wrong.
Aurangzeb is making moves to remove his thorns, his own brothers - Dara,
Suja and Morad, one after another, towards his ultimate goal to be the
sole successor , reign the empire and build a pure Islamic India. The
Rajput kings are falling into the traps of Aurangzeb like helpless
pawns, only to watch the earth is slipping under their feet. India was
seeing one of its bloodiest politics in its history.
in 5 acts were breaking and weaving the fabric of Indian history and the

reality, perceived imagination and something gray in between.
Quintessentially Theatrical, in its truest sense.
And Now, Shahjahan is HERE. With all its elements
of Conspiracy, murder and vengeance With valor, compassion, Helplessness
and the voice of conscience With Romance, Comedy and the eternal humane
