Starring Pratik Gandhi, short film ‘Shimmy’ will premiere on September 17 on Amazon MiniTV. It also features Chahat Tewani, Bhamini Oza Gandhi and is written and directed by
Disha Noyonika Rindani. ‘Shimmy’ is produced by Guneet Monga and Achin Jain, the power duo whose banner Sikhya Entertainment has churned out remarkable titles like ‘Pagglait’, ‘The Lunchbox’ and ‘Masaan’ among others.
A father-daughter duo tale, it is about a particularly hard day in the life of a young girl (played by Chahat Tewani) and her father (played by Pratik Gandhi) who can’t quite understand what’s troubling her.
The ‘Scam 1992: The Harshad Mehta Story’ actor is also set to make his Bollywood debut with ‘Bhavai’, which will release theatrically on October 1.
