MANDI GOBINDGARH: Desh Bhagat University, Mandi Gobindgarh, in collaboration with Faculty of Performing Arts and Media, Cultural Club of the university, celebrated World Theatre Day. Renowned Punjabi film actor Malkeet Rauni was the chief guest on the occasion.

Dr Zora Singh, Chancellor of the University, Dr Tajinder Kaur, Pro Chancellor, of the university and RJ Sangmitra were special guests of the event.

Malkeet Rauni shared his experiences of theatre and films with the students. He shared anecdotes from his life, to inspire the youth to not to give up in difficult times and to keep working hard until they achieve their goals. He emphasised the importance of having some aim in life and to work towards it with full dedication.

He added that cinema and theatre are two different streams and their acting patterns are also different but are interlinked. He compared acting to various roles we play in our life. He said that in cinema, when you give a take or shot, you have the option of a second take or many retakes, but in theatre you have to perform in one single shot, just like in real life.

He also interacted with students and answered their queries. Over 200 students attended the event.

Dr Zora Singh lauded the efforts of the department for organising the event. He said through this event, students had learnt a lot about acting, theatre and movies and those aspiring to do theatre or acting in future had gained important insights from Rauni’s talk.

Dr Harsh Sadawarti, Vice President, DBU, speaking on the occasion underlined the importance of the World Theatre Day which was celebrated to highlight the importance of theatre in the society.

Col Pardeep Kumar, Registrar, Dr LS Bedi, Dean of Academic Affairs, and Dr Davinder Sharma, Director Social Sciences and Languages, were also present.
