about Aasakta Kalamanch
Aasakta Kalamanch Pune is one of the leading contemporary theatre organisations in Marathi Theatre.

Their absolute insistence on innovative and exclusive production value and precision in technique makes their productions visually appealing too. Aasakta's core strength is its talented and motivated members who are pivotal players in its growth and success.
Artistic Director of Pune-based theatre company Aasakta Kalamanch, Mohit Takalkar has directed over 20 plays in Marathi, Hindi & English. He has consistently been staging plays different from the regular commercial kind, for the sole reason that he wants to present different stories that commercial theatre rarely ventures into. An accomplished actor and film editor, he has won several accolades and awards, and will be directing the play ‘Gajab Kahani’ for Aadyam’s third season of plays.
Since its inception in 2003, they have produced 23 Marathi productions, 3 Hindi plays and a couple of English productions.
