Reports of Divya Dutta reviving late Om Puri’s popular
play, Teri Amrita, made headlines yesterday. It was reported that Divya, along
with Gurdas Maan, was putting together, Teri Amrita (the longest running modern
play in Hindi) in Punjabi. But SpotboyE.com has learnt that the
project has hit a major roadblock.
Reason? It does not have late Om Puri’s wife, Nandita Puri’s blessings. Nandita has an objection to Divya taking over the project, under her banner Nalini Dutta Productions. The play that had suffered a major blow after Om Puri’s sudden demise, was revived by Divya Dutta, by getting Gurdas Maan to step into the legendary actor’s shoes. Divya had then approached Puri’s wife, Nandita, with regards to buying the copyright for the play.
Om Puri And Divya Dutta
Teri Amrita was the original copyright of Majma Arts, a company run by Om Puri. Divya laid out an elaborate document in front of Nandita, with Terms & Conditions, to buy the copyright under her banner, Nalini Dutta Productions. However, after detailed discussions, it became clear, that Nandita was not on the same page as Divya, and she wasn’t ready to part with the copyright.
Now, despite of Nandita’s hesitance, Divya decided to go ahead with the project, something that is unacceptable to late Om Puri’s family. Nandita has filed a complaint against the trio, Javed Siddiqui, Divya Dutta and Amrik Gill (SpotboyE.com is in possession of a copy of the legal documents pertaining to the case).
Teri Amrita, in Punjabi, featuring Divya Dutta and Gurdas Maan, was slated to premiere in Mumbai on September 9. But under the current circumstances, will it? Keep reading this space for updates.
Shabana Azmi And Farooq Sheikh
The Indian adaptation of the play first premiered in 1992 and was performed for over 20 years. It was conceived by Javed Siddiqui, who titled the rendition, Tumhari Amrita. It starred acting veterans Shabana Azmi and the late Farooq Sheikh.
