Actor Rajeev Khandelwal will soon be seen in the anthology ‘Offbeats Season 1’, which comprises six short films. He is a part of ‘His Master’s Voice’, in which he portrays an estranged son returning home to his dying father.
“More than anything, it was a thrilling experience to be a part of ‘His Masters Voice’. Some shorts are actually ‘large’. This is what I felt when I read the script. It is a challenge for the director and the writer to put together so many layers and emotions in such a short time so convincingly. I hope the viewers enjoy their time watching it,” Khandelwal said.
Apart from Khandelwal, actors like Namit Das, Nitish Pandey, Flora Saini, Smita Jaykar and Bhuvan Arora will be seen in the anthology, directed by Ambar Chakravarty.
Each film will be accompanied by a song sung by top singers such as Papon and Salim Merchant.
The first film ‘Station Master’, featuring Das, will release on January 24.
“As an actor, the character of Phool Kumar is highly fascinating. It is layered and yet it looks simple on screen, and that is what makes it really difficult to portray. I had a great time shooting with the highly talented director Ambar,” Das said.
The short films will stream on the YouTube channel, Gorilla Shorts, and are presented by Addict Studios.
