Last year, fellow New Yorker and Bollywood actor Prashantt Guptha made his American film debut with A NEW CHRISTMAS. The low budget indie film was an Official Selection at New York’s South Asian International Film Festival (SAIFF) where it witnessed a sold-out screening.
This year, the actor will shine again at this prestigious New York event with his next Hindi feature, LOVE YOU BAHUT SAARA. Prashantt co-stars with two icons of Hindi and Regional Indian cinema, Revathy and Vikram Gokhale, and calls it his best role yet in an Indian film. ‘Neerja and The Tashkent Files brought me a fair amount of recognition, but it is this beautiful film which I’d love to see as my game-changer once it gets its due release.’
The story revolves around the love and life of an aged couple in Nainital, one of whom starts to suffer from dementia. How the entry of a poor orphaned young man in their life changes the course of plots and paths is the essence of this offbeat drama. The film boasts of picturesque cinematography, a fresh story, heart-warming performances and soul-stirring music.
Prashantt Guptha will be in New York shortly after the virtual screening of LOVE YOU BAHUT SAARA this December through the SAIFF platform, to celebrate the year end and Christmas with his family out on Long Island. Says the actor, “It’s been an eventful year for Mother Earth, I can only look towards the good that came out and lessons learned, all with immense gratitude for how fortunate I am for my health, progress, and to be alive. Earlier this year, my new web-series SPECIAL OPS released on Hotstar, followed by a short film called PRABHA KI DIARY and a feature on ShemarooMe called REGARDS & PEACE. And to top it all off, A NEW CHRISTMAS has been non-exclusively licensed by US based The Africa Channel on which the acclaimed holiday drama will screen throughout the season.”
Looks like showbiz is finally saying a whole lot of ‘Love You Bahut Saara’ to the versatile artist who has toiled hard & long to make it big, from The Big Apple to Bollywood.
