Second: I know!! That also, based on Mahabharat!
First: Yeah! No originality! All copy-pasting!
First one shakes his head!
Second: Seriously! But one thing… Brother Nakul!
First: Yes bro Sahadev?
Sahadev: Every time there’s a play on Mahabharat, we always become side characters!!
Nakul: Right! Very Bad!!
Sahadev: Think about a bollywood movie on Mahabharat… for brother Judhishthir, Bhim or Arjun there will be Shah rookh Khan, Salaman Khan, Hrithik Roshan…
Nakul: But, you know for brother Bhim, Dharam paji would be the best… Kutte, kamine

Nakul: Rajpal Jadav!
Sahadev: Sushant Singh!
Nakul gets confused!
Nakul: Who is he?
Sahadev: Whatever. So, this time we are not going to do the same. I am sure there will not be any good line for us. So we will improvise!
Nakul: You are right!
Sahadev: We will make all the jokes and will give the punch lines!
Nakul: Right bro!!
Nakul punches Sahadev on chest! Sahadev gets hurt!
Sahadev: Uff! You don’t need to take the punch line part so seriously!! Well, there come the heroes!!
Nakul: Yes, I can see bro Judhishthir, Bhim, Arjun… also Durjodhon is coming with Shakuni!
Judhishthir, Bhim, Arjun, Durjodhon and Shakuni enter. Judhishthir and Arjun are talking between themselves, Bhim is busy eating something, Durjodhon has earplug on his ears, Shakuni is busy with his cellphone, some more phones in his hand.
Durjodhon: Ha ha ha ha ha ha…
Judhishthir: Why are you laughing?
Durjodhon: I am the bad man!! I laugh just like that! Have not u seen Gulshan Grover or some other bollywood villains? Ha ha ha ha…
Judhishthir is not impressed!
Durjodhon: Anyways, as we were discussing, I am going to challenge you in some game!!
Arjun: The dice game?
Durjodhon: What do you think I am? Am I Buladi??
Arjun is scared, he goes to Bhim. Durjodhon goes to Judhishthir.
Durojodhon: Boss, I want to challenge you in a game of Angry Birds!!
Suddenly Nakul comes in the front.
Nakul: Are those birds really angry?
Judhishthir: uff Sahadev, don’t disturb!
Nakul: Bro, I am Nakul!!!
Durjodhon: Anyways, are u going to play Angry Birds with us or not?
Judhishthir is not sure!
Arjun: Nehi Bhai nehi!
Arjun starts crying on Bhim’s shoulder! Bhim keeps munching food! Durjodhon is surprised! He goes to Judhishthir.
Durjodhon: What? You don’t know how to play Angry Birds?
Judhisgthir shakes his head!
Durjodhon: Ha ha ha ha… shame shame! Now you will tell me that, you don’t have a Blackberry either!
Judhishthir did not reply. He walked away. Arjun’s cry increases! Durjodhon is surprised! Then he starts laughing!
Durjodhon: Really!! You don’t have a blackberry!! I have two and my uncle Shakuni… he has five!! He is a world champion in Angry Birds!!
Durjodhon and Shakuni start dancing on ‘We are the blackberry boys’. Nakul also join with them! After the dance, Sahadev took Nakul to one side.
Sahadev: Why did you dance? You don’t have a blackberry!
Nakul (confused): But I have an apple!
Sahadev: Ohh really… wah! Wah! You know, I always knew you have very classy choices.
Nakul takes out an apple fruit from his pocket and offered to Sahadev.
Nakul: Bro, you want a bite?
Sahadev got angry and took Nakul to one side.
Durjodhon looks to Shakuni.
Durjodhon: Uncle Shakuni, what game should we play now?
