Samar Khan signs Puneet Malhotra for his short format film
The man behind films such as Shourya, Kuchh meetha ho jaaye, MTV Unplugged, and Coke Studio India is hunting for a girl. Before you jump to conclusions, he is looking out for a girl to cast opposite Puneet for his short film.
The man who brought you “I hate luv stories” is ready to fall in love. Facing the camera for the first time, this handsome Dharma man has already started shooting for Samar’s short film. Set in five different countries, it doesn’t get larger.
It has everything a Bollywood blockbuster could offer; locations, a dashing hero, a kick-ass story, and a pulsating song.They have started the hunt on Facebook on the Large Short Films page. The first schedule has been completed in Bangkok. Puneet says, “It’s not easy to make a short film. Definitely more difficult than a full length film. It has to have the same impact but in 10 minutes. Hats off to the guys to make such amazing short films. It’s time we started appreciating them.”
Samar spoke to us from Bangkok and said that he felt he was back in school. “It’s not easy. Especially when the world is watching you. The film will be released on Youtube… that’s a few billion screens compared to a mere 2500 multiplexes for a feature film. And here they have a choice to abuse vocally, unlike a theatre. So the pressure is huge.”
