MUMBAI—It’s entertaining, quite whacky and yet thought-provoking at the end of its near 5-minute run. Kussh Shatrughan Sinha, the younger twin from the family of the legendary actor and a director-aspirant, finally debuts after years of waiting with this very interesting short film, “Khoon Mein Hai,” promoting blood donation, a cause that is vital in India where, as the film’s statistics show, more than 38,000 donations are needed every day, and the country faces a shortage of 3 million units of blood annually.
Ankit K. Sharma, Sumedha Dogra, and Anubhav Mohanty have written this engrossing film that plays on the word “Khoon” (blood). It crisply narrates the story of a rich brat (Aparshakti Khurrana) boasting about his bloodline to a blind date (Kajal Aggarwal), who suggests that if his family’s bloodline is so rich, it should donate some of their blood for a good cause as well and save lives. The humor extends to the very last shot.
The short film was launched at Welingkar Institute of Management, Matunga, Mumbai, in the presence of Sinha and his lead players Kajal Aggarwal and Aparshakti Khurrana.
More power to Kussh – we await a punch-packed entertaining film now from you. The Sinha lineage is now fully in place.
