Nandita Das praise Aarti’s ‘The Song…’

Aarti Neharsh’s debut short film produced by Green Chutney Films, ‘The Song We Sang’, is a love story of two women featuring Serena Walia and Ayushi Gupta will have its India Premiere at 11th edition of Kashish Mumbai International Queer Film Festival.
The short is nominated in two categories ‘Indian Narrative Shorts section’ and ‘The Riyad Wadia Award for Best Emerging Indian Filmmaker’ at Kashish, which will be held online from July 22 to 30.  The Song We Sang is a romantic bittersweet tale about two people who find something in each other they have not found before. In its 20 minutes run time, it explores the warmth of an instant connection, heartbreak, and choices.
The short film had its European Premiere at London Indian Film Festival in June in Satyajit Ray Short film competition category where it won ‘Special Jury Mention’. The film was originally scheduled for a world premiere at the Indian Film Festival of Los Angeles (IFFLA) 2020, but the event has been postponed to next year due to the coronavirus outbreak. It will be screened at the International Film Festival of South Asia Toronto in August and The Imagine India Film Festival Madrid in September.

Neharsh co-wrote the script with Chintan Bhatt, who is also a co-producer in the project, along with Rahul Tejwani and Manan Bhatt of Green Chutney Films.
24-year-old writer-director, Aarti Neharsh whose graduation short film won the Best Student Film Award says, “It has been an overwhelming journey so far right from making the film to now bringing it to people who have received it with so much love and I am really excited for the Indian premiere. It is definitely special because it is also the first time the film will reach people here back home. I want to thank my producers at Green Chutney Films for making this happen and for believing in the story and in me right from the start. I also want to thank Nandita Das for her gracious and kind words on the film. It has really uplifted this journey.”
Actor-director Nandita Das who starred in Fire, India’s first film exploring the love story of two women is all praise for the short film. “The Song We Sang, directed by a young filmmaker, Aarti Neharsh, celebrates the beginning of a romance between two strangers. The short film is simple and sweet. It treasures and mourns its moments at the same time” she says.
Producer Rahul Tejwani of Green Chutney says, “We have built a brand which beliefs in producing stories and backing young talent. The Song We Sang is our debut in fiction storytelling and hints at the cinema we want to do. You would be seeing more of such work coming from our talented team.”
