Esha Deol will soon make her short film debut with Cakewalk, where she will be playing the role of a married chef. Dinesh Gupta, Shailendra Kuma and Arira Das produce the short film and Ram Kamal Mukherjee and Abhra Chakraborty will be directing it.
The teaser poster sets the tone of the short film, showing a piece of cake, a sindoor box and two hairbands that can make pigtails or ponytails. With this poster, it can be easily said that the film will show how a woman balances her work life and her personal life.
Few films have actually paid attention to the work life of their female protagonist and it is high time that there’s at least one short film that pays attention to the work and professional life instead of the love life of a woman.
Esha made her Bollywood debut in 2002 with the film Koi Mere Dil Se Pooche and then went on to act in films like Kucch To Hai, LOC Kargil, Yuva, Dhoom, Dus and others. She was last seen in the multilingual film Kill Them Young. Esha Deol becomes the next in line of her contemporary actors to jump onto the web series and short films band wagon. Earlier, Shamita Shetty and Riya Sen also made their web series debut last year.
On the auspicious occasion of Gudi Padwa, Ugadi, Cheti Chand and Navraatri, I am happy to reveal the first look of my short Hindi feature #Cakewalk. Produced by Dinesh Gupta, Shailendra Kumar and Aritra Das, the film is directed by Ram Kamal Mukherjee and Abhra Chakraborty. 🙏🏼 pic.twitter.com/vftNx5omnP
