Mumbai: We have always seen female actresses doing classical dances on screen, but in current times, a male lead actor daring to portray a role as a Kathak dancer is a rare thing to see.
Well we are talking about the very talented Saqib Saleem, whose new short film titled ‘Aamad’ has just released on digital platform. The film is produced and released by Terribly Tiny Talkies and is directed by ‘Neeraj Udhwani,’ who has previously worked with Saqib as the writer of ‘Mere Dad Ki Maruti’.
The short is about an emotional yet strained relationship between a father and his son. The film explores a story about a father who is a Kathak dancer and how his son is embarrassed of his father's art because he is bullied by his friends as a young boy practising a classical art form tagged as being feminine.
He moves on and distances from his father, growing upto becoming a corporate man himself. But due to unforeseen situation of his father being in a critical condition, he comes back and does that one final performance for the love of the art for his father.
