  7. Dear Sir, we live in Germany but plan to visit Kolkata on holidays. It is our ardent wish to enjoy a good Bengali theatre during our stay in Kolkata from Dec 7th to 21 ( except from Dec 11-14). We are fond of plays by Nandikar and are ready to buy tickets priced between Rs 200-400 range per ticket. Could you please help us.

    Warm regards

  8. Respected sir,

    Could you please provide me the details related to Nandikar’s ‘Six month actors training programme’ for 2015? I have been searching for the details like anything since July.

    Thank you very much.

  9. Respected Sir,

    Just like the above comment reads, so am I interested to join Nandikar as an actor in the part 2 level of actors (since my age is a bar). I would like to go and meet you people at Shyamnagar, someday but before that I need to get a brief intro and info of the course. Sadly, despite several trials, no one received my calls at the land line number of Nandikar. I wish there was a mobile number or way by which I could crack some infos. Awaiting your reply.

    Thank you,

  10. *Shyambazar (sorry for the error)
