Bharat Ratna Award 2020 recipient Richa Chadha currently has some interesting projects in her kitty.
From essaying supporting roles to playing a lead, Richa is one of the finest actresses of Indian cinema.
While fans are eagerly waiting for the release of Richa’s much-talked-about film ‘Madam Chief Minister’, a short film titled ’55km/sec’ featuring the actress already has released today on Disney+ Hotstar.
Helmed by the ‘Cargo’ director Arati Kadav, this sci-fi-short film features Richa Chadha & Mrinal Dutt in lead roles.
Shot on an iPhone amidst the lockdown, this short film revolves around the idea of living in a world stricken with fear as it narrates the story of an asteroid that’s about to hit earth at the speed of 55km/sec.
This 22-minute-long sci-fi short film, which has also released on the OTT platform founded by Kadav named “ShortFilmWindow”, was earlier released on Amazon Prime Video US and UK in December 2020.
While talking about it, Kadav said, “I am thankful to Disney + Hotstar and ShortFilmWindow for showering the film with love. The film is called 55 km/sec which is the speed at which the asteroid is making its way to earth.”
“As we’ve all acclimated to the new normal, the short film was a fun exercise. My team and I saw it as work to cheer ourselves up. Our virtual set was bubbling with new energy. This was a memorable experience for us and I hope the audience showers us with as much love,” she further added.
