Rajeev also shared how he has been utilising the lockdown time to rehearse his character. "I have never had the opportunity of working with any of them (his co-stars), so it makes it even more exciting. We have had table readings for the show, and I have used this time away from set, to work on my character. I hope it is a treat for my fans because they have never seen me in a role like this. Rajeev Khandelwal on His Theatre Debut Court Martial: ‘Essaying a Character on Stage Is Supremely Challenging’
