My passion is ‘acting on stage as well as in front of camera’. For me, theatre is a medium of ‘pleasant education’.
One of the few Heritage Conservationist and presently a student of M. A. (Dramatics) at LNMU, Darbhanga, Sunita Bharti has graduated in mathematics and pursued acting as her passion. She has acted in more than 100 plays and TV shows. Her much acclaimed work in Doordarshan serial ‘Balchanma’ and the telefilm ‘Kharij’ establishes her as an accomplished actor with amazing capability of adapting the characters she plays. She has proved her versatility by playing double role of contrast characters in her own directorial debut Yakshini.
An experimentalist by nature and inspired by the popular remark of Greek philosopher Cicero, “To be ignorant of the past is to be forever a child”, she steered her passion for theatre to more utilitarian path, the conservation and popularization of heritage. She has started a series of Heritage Plays (Infodrama), the first of the series being Yakshini and the Asthi-Kalash is upcoming. Other plays based on the terracottas found at Bulandibagh site in Patna and the excavated sites at Vaishali are in offing.
Apart from the series of Heritage-Plays, she has directed more than a dozen of other plays, Jaychand Ke Ansu and Bhamashah being the most acclaimed and innovative productions.
