Recently, John D'Silva was bestowed with the Title THE EMPEROR OF KONKANI STAGE by the Magazine, "Hello Margao, Hello Panjim", for his immense contribution in the field of Tiatrs. In a short span of years he has achieved a landmark in the Tiatr field.
John D'Silva is the first Tiatrist to enter Limca Book of Records 2010 for acting, writing, directing and producing twenty five (25) Tiatrs having a double alphabet in their titles and thereby taking Tiatrs to the greater heights and popularising it throughout the world.. and for achieving this great feat, he was congratulated in the Goa Legaslative Assembly.
He is the first one to receive the first YUVA SRUJAN PURASKAR Award from Art and Culture, Government of Goa for his immense contribution in the tiatr field.
As his Tiatrs are always written with thought provoking dialogues, powerful moral and message, the script of his Tiatr "BOVALL" was selected by Goa Konkani Academy and "Bovall" Tiatr Book was published.
John is the first one to enact tripple role in his VCD film "Fugddi" and double role in VCD film "Lofdde".
He is the first one to release his 25th Tiatr "Nattok" in London and Germany, and thereafter to stage it throught Goa.
When he made his debut on the Konkani stage, he was doing serious roles like villain and other characters with negative shades, but in the year 1999 when he was not having a comedian in his troupe, he switched to main comedy role in his Tiatr "UMANNEM", which was a huge hit, and thereby creating a great record on the Konkani stage. And today, he is regarded as the top most comedian and one of the best script writer of the Konkani stage.
