Jackky Bhagnani and Nawazuddin Siddiqui are the latest duo from Bollywood to emulate what can be called a shift from traditional feature films to short, more succinct movies.
Bhagnani recently released a few posters of his upcoming short film, Carbon, starring Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Prachi Desai. According to Times Of India, the film is set in 2067 and revolves around the issue of global warming and its ill-effects.
Bhagnani took to twitter to release the posters of the film. Here are his tweets:
