Naseeruddin Shah and Navni Parihar's short film, The Wallet, is gearing up for a digital release. Produced by Ram Kamal Mukherjee, the movie has done extensive rounds of various national and international festivals.
Speaking of the film Naseeruddin Shah says, “It's not easy to tell a story in a short time. I am impressed by the way Saumitra Singh [the director] treated the narrative. He is a young boy, trying to tell new stories through a newer medium. As an actor we all evolve and this is a part of my journey too. The film surpasses my expectations.”
"I have grown up watching Naseer saab films, and I don't have words to express my gratitude towards a legend like him. When Saumitra mentioned The Wallet, I couldn't imagine anyone other than the cast that Saumitra had selected for his film. It was an instant 'falling in love' moment for me," says producer Ram Kamal Mukherjee, who is releasing this film under his banner Assorted Motion Pictures. "This journey wouldn't have been possible without Saumitra's mother Shipra Singh (aunty) who actually supported him to fulfill his dream. The mother and son bonding was yet another unique combination that pulled us towards this project," added Ram Kamal.
The film is also produced by Aritra Das, Sarbani Mukherjee and Shashwat Joshi. It will soon première on the newly launched BiiggBang Amusement.
