Filmmaker Vishal Bhardwaj’s new film ‘Fursat’ starring Ishaan Khatter and Wamiqa Gabbi has been released on YouTube.
The 30-minute film was commissioned by Apple and shot entirely on iPhone 14.
The film has been described as “a magical story about a man so obsessed with controlling the future that he risks losing what he holds most precious in the present.” Fursat stars Wamiqa Gabbi and Ishaan Khatter, who these days is credited mononymously as Ishaan. The short features an original soundtrack by Bhardwaj and lyricist Gulzar, with featured vocalists such as Sukhwinder Singh and Kailash Kher. Fursat has been shot by cinematographer Swapnil Sonawane, and features choreography by Shiamak Davar. “A traditional film camera comes with 10 people, 3 attendants and 10 boxes of lenses… you can’t move around. You can’t be quick. iPhone liberated me in that sense,” Bhardwaj said.
