Shantanu Maheshwari created a storm of sorts when he went on to make it to the finals of Jhalak Dikhla Jaa Season 9. He is not only a promising actor but also an accomplished dancer.

The actor will soon be seen on-screen and this time, in a short film.

And what’s more?
He will be seen in a completely different avatar. Produced by Thought Process Films, the film is titled ‘Something Like Love’ and the concept promises to have never been explored on before the Indian short film platform.

‘Something Like Love’ is the story of Rishabh, a 20-year-old average looking guy who has a huge crush on his neighbour, Sonia. He sees her every day in the elevator and gathers all his courage to speak to her, but his fear of rejection stops him.

The future, though, has a unique twist in store for him.
On what made him choose the short film Shantanu revealed, “This is the kind of concept which sounded interesting and was something that I definitely wanted to explore.”

He accepted, “This is something that I have never done before and I am very excited for you guys to see this short film. I have portrayed a dual role for the very first time, something which was quite challenging but I absolutely enjoyed playing it! It was a good challenge.”

Speaking about his shooting experience Shantanu said,”The team was new, my co-star was new but we gelled quite well. Some of the scenes were quite challenging. I had to look at a lamp in one of the sequences and had to imagine it as a girl whom I was romantically inclined too! So yes, you will get to see a totally different side of me on a different platform.”

Shedding some light on working with his new co-star Nadia Shaikh, Shantanu quipped, “Yes she is a nice girl, very adjusting and was open to learning new things, so it was good working with her.”

As the sweet love story moves forward, it makes you wonder if it’s best when two lovers remain strangers while stating a question; are we moving towards a future in which technology actually connects people or is there a hidden motive behind all this
