Mumbai: Actors Neena Gupta and Jackie Shroff appear together for the first time in the new short film from Terribly Tiny Talkies, Khujli.
TTT, a channel on YouTube, which brings filmmakers together for short subject projects, released the film on Friday.
“Khujli is a light-hearted film. I loved the story and the way Sonam Nair (director) narrated it. I really enjoyed working with the team of TTT,” Jackie said in a statement.
Talking about the steamy scenes in the short film, Jackie said: “When your director holds a whip in her hands, it becomes easy for an actor to be kinky.”
Neena, who has worked in powerful and critically acclaimed projects like Woh Chokri, Gandhi, Gumrah, Saans and Ladies Special, has featured in a short film for the first time.
“Shooting for Khujli was as much fun as reading its script. When actors have enjoyed the process of doing the film so much, I am sure the audience would enjoy it too. It was a great experience,” Neena said.
Sharanya Rajgopal, Chief Writer and Creative Producer at TTT, says Khujli is a different story that had not been explored by the platform before.
“The monotony of a middle-aged couple’s life taking a risqué turn is what drew us in. The entire process of making this film has been a riot. Think about it, it could happen to any couple around us behind closed doors,” Rajgopal said.
“Right from the early stages of exploring this premise to roping in Jackie Shroff and Neena Gupta to finally executing Sonam’s insane vision — this is one journey that we will remember for a very long time. This film is bold, funny and unique,” Rajgopal added.
