Mumbai, India, June 26, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- Shortkut – The Con is on is a heart-warming, young slice-of-life comedy about the trials and tribulations of two con artists, a struggling director and actor and the zany situations they face in the pursuit of their tinsel-town dreams.
The film revolves around 2 principal characters Shekher (Akshaye Khanna), a struggling assistant director/ script-writer and Chandu (Arshad Warsi), a struggling junior artist. A twist of fate gets them together under one roof as they share a room in a chawl (tenement) in Mumbai. While Shekhar is supremely talented and confident of his skills, Chandu is a buffoon, a complete non-actor who believes he is God’s gift to Bollywood.
What follows is a hilarious tale of con, deceit, super-stardom and subsequent fall. Shot in picturesque Bangkok, and featuring Amrita Rao make-over into a hot bombshell, Short Kut comes with a generous dose of laughs as well as emotions that will pull your heart strings and keep you glued to your seat.
