Y-Star Cine & Television Pvt Ltd launched the poster of its debut short film, Shatika – The Undraped directed by young debutante Sritama Dutta, starring Milind Gunaji, Sushmita Mukherjee, Harry Josh and new comer Swagata Nayek. Also the, popular entertainment publicist, Vedant Mishra has ventured in to production with YSCTPL (Y-Star Cine & Television Pvt Ltd) and is credited as the Executive Producer of the International Short .
The poster has been launched in the presence of the cast and crew of the short.
Speaking on the launch, Producer Aditya Bharadwaj said, “Shatika is different from other short films that is on hype these days. Shatika has a rustic flavor that portrays a strong social message. Probably, this movie is of its own kind that will spread a new message on HIV awareness”.
The movie certainly does justice in bringing out a whole new meaning on the very awareness of HIV, unlike other shorts or AVs seen so far.
“Shatika balances an emotional quotient with the message rendered through the short. It features a song that breaks the monotony of just visuals and dialogues. The movie depicts the underlying truth of the lower strata of the society and their reaction towards an HIV affected person. No one understands the roots of it but strangely the victim turns untouchable for them”, quoted director Sritama Dutta, who has also penned the script of the short.
The first look of the poster has already began to create buzz on the social media, grabbing the attention of many.
Shatika is a group work of young heads and has the potential to go far with its outcome. The producer wishes to take the short across several national and international short festivals and markets, hoping to make a mark in both the circuits.
All eyes now lie upon the trailer which will be launched soon as mentioned by the Director and Producer.
