Produced by Guneet Monga’s Sikhya Entertainment the film releases on Amazon’s miniTV
Guneet Monga’s Sikhya Entertainment and Amazon’s miniTV are collaborating for a repertoire of short films and the first movie from this collaboration – Shimmy, starring Pratik Gandhi, will premiere on 17th September 2021. The other short films in the pipeline will be announced and released over the coming months on the service.
Shimmy is about a particularly hard day in the life of a young girl (played by Chahat Tewani) and her father (played by Pratik Gandhi) who can’t understand what’s troubling her. The film also stars Bhamini Oza Gandhi in a pivotal role. It is written and directed by Disha Noyonika Rindani (who has previously co-written A Death in the Gunj and directed award winning short documentary based on Indian Rapper Naezy called Bombay 70). Shimmy is produced by Guneet Monga and Achin Jain, the duo whose banner Sikhya Entertainment has churned out remarkable titles like Pagglait, The Lunchbox and Masaan to name a few.
Talking about the association, Guneet Monga, CEO of Sikhya Entertainment said, “Short format content is one of the most exciting ways to collaborate with fresh talent. At Sikhya, we thoroughly enjoy discovering and empowering upcoming young filmmakers and technicians. It was inspiring to see these stories come to life, both on and off screen. I am glad we share the vision of presenting captivating homegrown narratives to an ever-evolving audience with miniTV.”
