Sudhanva Deshpande in conversation with Dr. Javed Malick, August 2016, New Delhi

Sudhanva Deshpande in this conversation with Dr. Javed Malick talks about Habib Tanvir's theatre and politics, language and form, actors and Naya Theatre. Dr. Malick says, 'Habib sa'ab understood the classical form of Indian theatre through the folk form, he realised that the folk and the classical are not really that different.' This conversation tries to capture the true self of Habib Tanvir, as a playwright, a director, an actor, a manager, a poet, a public intellectual and one of the most important personalities of post-Independence India.
