Akbar The Great Nahin Rahe is Pierrot’s Troupe’s latest Comedy: A Hinglish Play with every comic shade - spoof, mimicry, satire and farce.
What happens when Akbar’s greatness is questioned in today's India? He finds support in heaven from Ashoka to Alexander to Atal Bihari Vajpayee. But, to redeem his name, he needs an ally on earth. And he finds one, but an unlikely ally...
Who is He or She?
