Dance, drama and tamasha are everyday aspect in Bollywood. However, Debutant director Abhijeet Das's short film Khamoshiyan revolves around a dog lover.
Das is quite excited about the film because he has 15 dogs himself. The subject of the movie is very close to his heart. "I have worked with Kangana in Life in a Metro and Woh Lamhe. I wanted her to do this film. I felt she was perfect as she had dogs, she could understand the emotions well and she was quite comfortable with them. But she wasn't available for this project as she had back-to-back films to shoot," said the dog-loving director.
Even though Kangana couln't make time for his film, he thinks that Raima will do a great work."I also know Raima and now that we have shot the film I must say she did her job perfectly," he said.
"Pets are loyal and also at times possessive about their master. In this film, when a guy comes to meet Raima the dog gets jealous. I hope people understands the love and warmth of pets," Das added.
"I feel the scenario of short films is improving here. There is an audience for that," said Das, who has worked with Basu on films like Life In A Metro, Barfi among others. Khamoshiyan is produced under the banner Royal Stag Mega Movies Large Short Films, a platform for young short filmmakers. A group of 10 filmmakers including Sudhir Mishra and Anurag Kashyap announced the banner, where short films will be made by each of them. This is one of the films. This film was released online last month.
