Sci-Fi short film Carbon is all set to release on Large Short Films’ YouTube channel on August 20. And Jackky Bhagnani, producer and actor of the film, has said that he is fulfilling his social responsibility through Carbon.
In a media interaction, he said that a film is the most convincing medium to make audiences socially more aware. Written and directed by Maitrey Bajpai and Ramiz Ilham Khan, the film is also co-produced by Deepshikha Deshmukh.
Though Jackky believes that the digital medium has become popular among the masses, it doesn’t generate much revenue. Even branding doesn’t cover the costs incurred.
The short film also stars Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Prachi Desai and Yashpal Sharma in prominent roles. While Jackky plays the man with an artificial heart, Nawaz essays the role of a man from Mars. The Digital Hash has already reported that Prachi and Nawazuddin have worked for free in the film.
Set in 2067, the futuristic film revolves around the premise where there is very less oxygen and abundance of carbon. As per Jackky, keeping the story simple for the audiences was a challenge.
Many people he met for the project didn’t understand the script, including his father Vashu Bhagnani.
