Mumbai: Veteran actors Farida Jalal and Kulbhushan Kharbanda, who have spent decades in filmdom, have made their short film debut with a naughty movie titled “Scandal Point” in which they are seen romancing each other.
Directed by Ankur Tewari, the film tells the story of a senior citizen couple reliving their romantic college days when they used to drive up to a favourite love point when they’re rudely accosted by a policeman.
“After over five decades of being in the industry and having acted in virtually every format including films, television and advertising, it’s incredible to still have a chance to debut in a new digital format and work with such a young crew in such a fun film,” Farida Jalal, who started her career as a child actor in 1963, said in a statement.
“Scandal Point” is part of Yash Raj Films’ youth wing Y-Films’s short film anthology “Love Shots”.
The film also features a very trippy original soundtrack composed and performed by Gaurav Dagaonkar featuring Arunima and Anurag.
Producer Ashish Patil said: “It was an honour and pleasure to get a chance to work with legends Farida-ji and Kulbhushan-ji. They were without a doubt the youngest and naughtiest cast we’ve ever worked with — showing us how love is timeless, ageless and often shameless.
“This story is particularly special because it is inspired by my parents and features the trippiest song of the album, ‘Babu Moshai’.”
