Keki Adhikari says acting in a play is a ‘Do or Die situation’

It was the first time actress Keki Adhikari had done a theater play. An actress used to shooting in parts, found acting in plays stressful and tough. She says that acting in a play is like being in a ‘Do or die situation’. She added, “You mind should be working all the time. If your mind is absent for a while you would loose the audience. To grab the audience again, you would need to spend more energy.”
