What is the short film about?
It deals with one's own happiness or someone else's and listening to one's own silence to experience that. "It's a story of us, of everyone who is recognized by their relationships, family, home... A choice we happily make. But at some point or the other, we all have felt the strong need to let go of all responsibilities," Shah said in a statement.
Shah's film 'Someday' will be screened at Germany's film festival
Shah previously helmed another short film, titled Someday, which has achieved many milestones. Now, the flick is set to premiere at the 18th Indian Film Festival in Stuttgart, Germany, and has bagged the quarter-finalist position at the Female Eye Film Festival 2021. The pandemic-set film is about a frontline warrior, who meets her mother suffering from Alzheimer's after days of duty and quarantine period.
'Darlings' and 'Delhi Crime 2' are Shah's upcoming projects
After Zoya Akhtar's Dil Dhadakne Do, Shah won hearts in the crime thriller Delhi Crime and she'll be seen in its second season, too. She's also filming with Alia Bhatt and Vijay Sharma in Darlings and will appear in Vipul Shah's Human, too. One of her recent posts said the shooting of Doctor G, which also stars Ayushmann Khurrana and Rakul Preet, has begun.
