Shreyas Talpade plans to bring theatre plays online, will return to stage with Typecaste

Shreyas Talpade’s first role was that of Sita for a school play on Ramayana. The next year he played Draupadi in the school version of the Mahabharat. This was perhaps the first sign of how versatile Shreyas Talpade would be in later years. From school plays to street plays to monologues and mimes – Shreyas wanted to learn and be a part of everything. “From 1990 till 2005 I did close to 2500 shows of different productions on the professional stage. Hindi, Marathi, English, Urdu – such was my love for the stage that I didn't want to miss a single chance to be under the arc lights. Whatever I am today is because of theatre, it grooms you and betters your craft like no other medium.

From theatre, the actor made the switch to television, and later films. But in the midst of all his other work commitments, Shreyas was inspired to return to the stage – with Zee Theatre's telep..
