Filmmaker Arati Kadav’s sci-fi short film 55 km/sec can be debuting on streamer Disney+ Hotstar on Wednesday.
Featuring Richa Chadha, the film is predicated on Cargo director’s script. She shot it in the course of the coronavirus-induced lockdown in 2020.
The film may even release on ShortFilmWindow, an OTT platform based by Kadav.
The short film takes ahead the thought of dwelling in a world stricken with concern because it narrates the story of an asteroid that’s about to hit earth.
“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,” Kadav stated in a press release.
“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 added.
55 km/sec was earlier launched internationally on Amazon Prime Video US and UK.
