“King of Comedy” Siddharth Randeria entertained the audience with his laugh-a-minute performance in his latest comedy drama “Gujjubhai Banya Dabangg” at the newly renovated PYLUSD Performing Arts Center in Placentia, Calif. Mar. 22.

Stage Paint Productions, a new venture headed by Manoj Kaytee and Anil Shah, in association with Babu Patel of Tisha Entertainment, had a successful launch with the sold-out show.

Randeria plays Jagdish Pandya, a common man constantly nagged by his family members to prove himself in life. Pandya is waiting for an opportunity to come his way to show the world that he is a man of substance who upholds his principles.

As fate would have it, this opportunity manifests itself when a dreaded gangster is killed in Pandya’s house and upon being nudged by the ghost of his father, Pandya decides to turn the tables in his favor, setting the wheels in motion for this laugh-riot situational comedy.

Randeria is best known for his Gujarati comedy plays, for which he has won multiple awards as a writer, director and actor.

“Gujjubhai Banya Dabangg” has had a successful run in India and is currently on tour until April 26, with a performance almost every day in multiples cities across the U.S. and Canada.

The series started in 2012 with the first play, “Lage Raho Gujjubhai,” which is considered one of the most successful and critically acclaimed plays in the history of Gujarati theater, having completed over 700 shows in just two years.

This was followed by “Lo Gujjubhai Ghode Chadya” and “Gujjubhai Ni Golmaal.”

Randeria’s fans are awaiting more sequels in the “Gujjubhai” series and local theater patrons are looking forward to more quality programs from Stage Paint Productions.
