The Delhi government will organize a play on the life of social reformer BR Ambedkar on a grand scale at the JLN Stadium from February 25 to March 12, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said on Saturday.
Earlier, the play was to be staged from January 5 but it was postponed due to the rise in COVID-19 cases in the national capital.
Actor Ronit Roy will play the role of BR Ambedkar in a 100-ft arena having a 40-ft revolving stage, Mr Kejriwal said. “This will possibly be the biggest show in the world at such a scale,” he claimed.
The chief minister described himself as a “bhakt (devotee)” of Ambedkar and said he worships him because he struggled all his life for the poor.
The play will be staged twice every day at 4 PM and 7 PM.
Tickets will be available for free but people will have to book them in advance due to the limited number of seats, Mr Kejriwal said.
