Directed by Mansi Jain movie features actor Aparshakti Khurana & Mallika Dua in lead role 

Royal Stag Barrel Select Large Short Films presents ‘Nawab’, a perfect short film that portrays the solace a heartbroken man finds in an unexpected place. Directed by talented writer, Mansi Jain, the short film features brilliant actor Aparshakti Khurana, Mallika Dua and Maria Goretti in an unconventional role.  

The story of ‘Nawab’ revolves around a man who is dumped by his wife after 4 years of marriage and leave him not only depressed but also with a dog that they adopted together. Barely able to handle his own feelings, the man decides to dump the unwanted dog but ultimately finds a companion in him.  

Commenting on the film, actor Aparshakti Khurana said, “Nawab is a moving story which teaches us the important lessons on life, loss and companionship in a funny yet deep manner. I really enjoyed working with Mansi who has been brilliant at writing and directing many compelling films of a wide range. It’s great that platforms like Royal Stag Barrel Select Large Short films is backing clutter breaking content from people with a unique perspective on life and cinema. It is encouraging to see Nawab be nominated this year at Filmfare awards under Short film category and I hope that we will win next time.”  

Talking about Nawab, writer-director of the film Mansi Jain said, “Nawab is a movie that is close to my heart and carries a message that is important to me. We are surrounded by situations that test us and I wanted to ask that can we care about someone else when our own life is falling apart. People surrender animals all the time and they always have a reasonable excuse in their books. But maybe we can look at the 20 reasons to keep the animal, to keep the relationship we committed to. This is my third film with Royal Stag Barrel Select Large Short Films and I’m excited to be partnering with them again. I love that 

this platform encourages directors & storytellers to showcase unique ideas.

I hope people love our work in Nawab when it releases online on Feb 4.”

With every character etching a special place in the hearts of the audience with their unique quips and quirks in &TV’s Gudiya Humari Sabhi Pe Bhari, the show is all set to introduce a Naya Sadasya to its interesting blend of characters. This new member will be a popular actor, Ishtiyak Khan, best known for his role as Hiraman Tiwari in the film Anaarkali of Aarah, Chaurasia in Bharat, Vasu in Jolly LLB, Sunny in FryDay, and Munna in Ammaa Ki Boli amongst others.

Ishtiyak will be portraying the role of Ballu, a struggling English teacher having his own quirks in spoken English, and whose dialogues are bound to tickle the funny bone of the audience. Ballu is the new friendly neighbor of the Gupta’s and married to two women Champa and Chameli played by Khushboo Sawan and Kaushaki Rathore.

Speaking about making his comeback on television, Ishtiyak said, “Gudiya Humari Sabhi Pe Bhari is my second television series and I am quite thrilled about getting an opportunity to be a part of it. The show has been quite a success with the audience for its relatable characters, authentic Bundelkhandi dialect and simple storyline. In fact, the show is quite popular and loved by people in my hometown in Panna, Madhya Pradesh. And they are quite excited about my entry in the show and eagerly looking forward to it.”

Speaking about his character, ‘Ballu’ in the show, the actor commented, “Ballu’s character is going to be a delight for the audience. Caught between two wives, who never leave a chance to publicity roast him especially when he tries to be over smart, Ballu’s broken English will make a good laugh and hilarity for the audience. Ballu’s presence will add an authentic MP flavor in his dialect, mannerisms along with his look and feel, making for complete family entertainment. I am looking forward to the audience's reaction to this brand-new character in the show.”

In the upcoming episode, Pappu is about to meet with an accident while walking on the road, but someone saves him and introduces himself as Ballu. Ballu (Ishtiyak Khan) is Gudiya’s new neighbor and has come to live in the haunted Haveli. Pappu calls Ballu over for lunch and Ballu accepts his invitation. The moment Ballu puts the first morsel in his mouth he gets up and starts to leave Gudiya’s house saying he needs to rush to the washroom. With Ballu entry, whole new exciting incidents await Gudiya’s family. It needs to be seen how the family welcomes their neighbor of theirs in the coming days.

Get set to welcome our Naya Sadasya, Ballu in Gudiya Humari Sabhi Pe Bhari at 8:00 PM, every Mon-Fri only on &TV
