We are now living in the age of the moving image. Due to the advent of the digital revolution and the internet short films are thriving. It is the new age of renaissance of telling a story directly and their brevity makes them ideally suited. Actor Neeraj Bharadwaj, who played the role of Chirag Modi alias MotaBhai in the popular serial Saath Nibhana Saathiya is featuring in not one but two different short movies with different visions. One in fact is a documentary and the other one is a short film.
Parivartan… EkNeev revolves around the liquor prohibition in Bihar imposed by C.M. Nitish Kumar. This documentary is produced under the banner of Aaryan Production and is jointly directed by Amar Vatsa and Shruti Mehrotra. Ashutosh Mehrotra has scripted the short film and Raj Sehgal is the creative director. Sai Srijan presents this project.
Neeraj Bharadwaj plays the main protagonist. Speaking about this documentary film Neeraj Bharadawaj says, “Banning liquor in Bihar was a commendable job and I thank Nitish Kumar for prohibiting the sale and consumption of it.”Neeraj further states, “This short film is in support to this initiative. I play Ram Kishan where it is shown that how a family suffers when the male head is addicted to drinking and after the ban on liquor there is a change in the family and there is happiness all over.”
The second short film is titled as ‘Main Porn Star Banna Chahti Hoon’ of which the shooting has also been completed. Being made under the banner of Ishaan Cine Multimedia, this has been directed by Raj Sehgal. Highlighting about this film, Raj Sehgal said, “Recently one famous director had posted the same sort of film on social media and which we felt was improper and unjustified. This short is in reply to it and will be soon posted on the social media.”
Neeraj Bharadwaj chips in and said, “I play the father of a daughter in Main Porn Star Banana ChahtiHoon. It is tricky when your young daughter randomly puts in this request. In this film I explain to her in both the ways making her understand its proper idiom.” He further cites, “The youth of today are emotional and stimulating. As they grow up or attain adolescence it won’t help by scolding or beating them. We should understand their feelings and explain it in a good-humored and friendly way. It is necessary that these youngsters learn our culture and civilization and do not take wrong step or directions.”
