Last week, the first short film from Y-Films, Yash Raj Films’ youth wing, titled ‘The Road Trip’ starring Nimrat Kaur & Tahir Raj Bhasin opened to phenomenal feedback and views. And on the back of it, releases the 2nd in the Love Shots anthology titled ‘Koi Dekh Lega’ featuring Saqib Saleem [Mere Dad Ki Maruti, Hawa Hawaai, Mujhse Fraaandship Karoge] & Shweta Tripathi [of Masaan fame]. Directed by Ankur Tewari, the film that’s based on a real life incident tells the story of a young couple trying to find some privacy at a bus stop in a crowded city and also features original music composed & perfomed by the Anand Bhaskar Collective.
Adds Saqib, “It was great to work with Y-films again. When I heard the story I was quite touched and it was something new… so I challenged myself to see if I could pull it off. Hope people like it.”
The music for Love Shots is exclusively available on Wynk music for a period of 3 days before its release. Mr. Srini Gopalan – Director – Consumer Business, Airtel, says, “Airtel has been a pioneer in the Indian telecom industry and is leading the 4G growth story in the country. Smartphones and fast mobile internet have transformed the way we consume content, with video emerging as the most popular form. Consumers, in particular, the multi-tasking youth, are looking for engaging video content to snack on and we believe Love Shots from YRF will set a new benchmark in short storytelling. As the leading smartphone network, Airtel is very excited to be a part of this innovative project.”
Anand Bhaskar who has composed and sung a beautiful love ballad titled ‘Faasle’ for short films says, “'Love Shots' is not just a web series, it's also a means to marry independent music with mainstream content. Needless to say, we at Anand Bhaskar Collective had a blast working with Ankur Tewari and the kind folk at Y-films and it was an amazing experience shooting the music video for our song. We are excited about the series and are proud that our song is associated with Love Shots and can't wait for the music to release!”
