Actor Pranav Sachdev plays four different characters in the upcoming short film “Tiny Disasters”, and is naturally excited.
“I am getting an opportunity to play four different roles in the same film and that I believe is a dream for any actor. I play a casanova, a heartbroken lover, a super-rich brat and an addict. So, I play different characters, it’s basically a different representation of Gen Z,” he says.
The film contains stories that end in a few minutes and can be consumed on the go. Pranav explains the idea behind this film: “We are the microwave generation, who want everything very quickly and trends show that audience attention span is getting shorter by the day. Short films are snackable, a quick dose of entertainment and lockdown has only accelerated the digital revolution. Hence, people have developed a greater appetite for shorter, crisper and juicier content. I could be wrong but I predict shorter content to be the future of entertainment.”
“These ‘quirkies’ are for the generation that wants everything instantaneous and swift. The stories begin on one note but end in a very Guy De Maupassant-esque manner, with disastrous outcomes. These stories are mini and quirky hence we thought ‘Tiny Disaster’ would be a fitting title,” he adds.
The film is directed by Gautam Arora and also features Nupur Nagpal, Nirmal Kothari, Deeya Dey and Deepali Jain. It is set to release in August.
Pranav Sachdev is seen in shows such as “Zindagi Dot Com” and “Agar Tum Saath Ho” and he recently worked in the film “Almariyaan”, which deals with homosexuality.
