Chahat Tewani, who plays the little girl, and her father go on an uncomfortable shopping spree no one saw coming in the one-and-a-half-minute long clip.
As the trailer for the short film ‘Shimmy,’ in which actor Pratik Gandhi, well known for his performance in ‘Scam 1992,’ plays the father, was published on Thursday, he spoke about how much he loved and learned from making the film.
With little under two minutes of footage, the teaser portrays an uncomfortable shopping trip between a young girl (Chahat Tewani) and her father that no one saw coming. Their ascent and ascent as they adjust to their new world is captured in this coming-of-age narrative.
Pratik, when asked why he decided to take on this job, stated, “I’m grateful ‘Shimmy’ discovered me. I was moved to tears by the narrative. As an actor, I’ve always believed in trying new things, and with ‘Shimmy,’ I had the opportunity to do just that.”
Pratik described his role as “a very realistic individual going through an unknown curve as a dad of a teenage daughter” when asked about it. Disha Noyonika Rindani wrote and directed the film, which also features Bhamini Oza Gandhi in a key part.
“Shimmy” is the first in a series of short films to be produced in conjunction with Amazon Mini TV by Guneet Monga (Sikhya Entertainment). The upcoming short films will be revealed and distributed in the coming months. The movie will be available for free viewing on Amazon’s tiny TV service on September 17th.
