Ishaan Khattar's Fursat is out now, and its pure magic that lures your attention and makes you glued to your screen till the end. Vishal Bhardwaj directed the short film, ticking all the boxes for this one-of-a-kind art shot on an iPhone 14.
Gulzar wrote the lyrics, and the soundtrack was composed by Vishal Bhardwaj. The beautiful amalgamation of these fine artists was backed up by the choreography of Shiamak Davar, also known as the "guru of modern contemporary dance." Ishaan Khatter, the lead protagonist of this film, has been an ardent student of Shiamak and has been associated with the institute for the longest time.
This is the first time the student and teacher have collaborated on a short film that has received a lot of love from the viewers. Speaking exclusively to us about Fursat and his experience working on this project, Shiamak Davar said, "When I heard the script for the first time, I was intrigued. As a choreographer, working on projects that make you work hard and bring something fresh to the table is always interesting. The essence of it should connect with your audience. Fursat did that."

Music, dance, drama, and a little bit of magic.

Shiamak added, "It was a wonderful experience working with Vishal Bhardwaj. He is a visionary filmmaker who has been blessed with immense knowledge about his art. Ishaan has been brilliant. He executed the choreography beautifully. I have seen him from scratch, and him doing a phenomenal job was truly an emotional moment for me."
