About my withdrawal from Guards at the Taj

Hello

You are probably aware that I will not be able to participate in the upcoming production of Guards at the Taj at Epicenter, Gurgaon.

This is an unfortunate turn of events. The support and love through this process was overwhelming and I couldn’t wait to be in that theatre with all of you. I was really looking forward to performing in my hometown of Delhi for the first time in my life.

For all of you who made plans, bought tickets, friends who jumped on the link the day it opened and bought front row seats, my family that booked the rest of the front section and most of all my colleagues who worked so hard on making this a possibility please know that you all mean a lot to me and your support motivated me more each day. 

But the risks involved were getting higher too as I now live in New York and have been studying and working here for over 3 years. And the journey I’ve been through is bigger than any dream.

Unfortunately sometimes things don’t turn out the way we imagine them. This sudden setback is one such thing. To say that I am disappointed and saddened is an understatement. But I didn’t have a choice.

The producers and the rest of the team are trying their best to put the show together back in Delhi without me. The challenge for them has become exponentially bigger. They have been working really hard and have a lot of things in place for a really cool show. So I request you to please carry on and go watch the show and support them. That would really mean the world to them and to me.

This compromise has turned in to a defining moment and I vow to work harder than before and I promise to bring you something exciting and fun as soon as these issues with international borders are resolved.

I will continue making you proud as the unending support you have all offered means the world to me.

Thank you so much

Most humbly yours

Shashwat
