Popular actor and Bigg Boss 11 contestant Hiten Tejwani who was recently seen in a short film titled ‘Unkahee’, kept his fans entertained even in these unfortunate times. The film was released on Eros Now, this September.
In an EXCLUSIVE interview with us, Hiten shared his experience working on this film, discussed his co-stars and many other things.
Talking about ‘Unkahee’, He shared, “The film was not shot anywhere in between lockdown but before that, because in lockdown it is difficult to get everybody in a close room. And because the story of the film demands everyone to be in a room together, shooting in lockdown would have breaked the law and norms of government. Because when shooting a plot like this, it is not impossible to maintain proper social distance”.

The crime- thriller short film has a mysterious plot, which keeps the audiences on cliff hanger unraveling the biggest mystery of who is the serial killer between six suspects sitting in a dingy garage. The script and characters both are very engaging, complex, and brings in a lot of challenges.
Talking about choosing A mystery and thriller genre he says, “I loved both the script and the character of the movie and of course Anushree Mehta, the director. She is a dear friend, she comes up with a lot of different concepts and I was really impressed by how she managed to do it again with such an ensemble cast. It is difficult to do a Thriller in one room because generally, thrillers have a lot of locations, but our plot was completely different A serial killer is on a loose among six suspects locked in one room. It was a challenge to keep the audiences engaged.
The movie has a stellar star cast, Sehban Azim, Anupriya Goenka, Ayushman Saxena, Ashwin Mishra, Ravi Khemu, Ashok Pandit, and Hiten himself. Hiten shared, that it was a brilliant experience working with all the actors.
