Debonair Ssharad Malhotra is on a roll
His TV show ‘Kasam’ may have just ended but he already has his hands full with the next project. Ssharad is gearing up for his next short film with director Aneeta Patel. In fact, the two have already proven to be a winning combination with their previous film, ‘She’s D One’. The film, written and directed by Aneeta, has garnered accolades at international film festivals. It has won the AAB Best Short Film award as well as the Best Director award.
Aneeta says that she loves working with Ssharad. “Ssharad is magic on camera and that’s more than evident in ‘She’s D One’. I wrote this film with Ssharad in mind and the way he has brought Shaurya’s character to life is a thrill to watch. This film will always be special to me,” she says.
‘She’s D One’ was also the winner of the month at the Lake View International Film Festival and has bagged the SFAAF Best Romance Short Film award. That’s not all! It was a semi-finalist at CICFF, the Los Angeles cine fest, and has been officially selected for the Los Angeles Film Awards.
Closer home, it continues to get rave reviews and is also the official selection for the Pickurflick Indie Film Festival.
The actor is full of praise for Aneeta. “I never felt that I was working with a first-time filmmaker… Aneeta is super passionate about her craft and is well versed with cinema. She is a complete joy to work with. I am looking forward to the next film I do with her,” he says.
He adds, “I am so excited at seeing the response to our earlier film ‘She’s D One’. The film has been accepted so well and it feels great that people have loved our work.”
