Varun Bajaj’s Bar Stools goes to Cannes
Varun Bajaj’s short film Bar Stools starring Rajit Kapur ,Anahita Uberoi and Aum Ahluwalia has been selected for the Cannes Library and is also listed on Catalogue du Court,their official online portal.
Talking about the film says director Varun Bajaj, “The story is all about two middle- aged loners who develop a blooming romance over five afternoons at a local watering hole. Interestingly, the bartender decides to play the cupid and get the love story rolling”. Commenting on the challenges the youngster faced in pulling off the short film in a restricted time says Bajaj, “The biggest challenge we faced was getting the actors on board. Luckily the minute Anahita Uberoi and Rajit Kapur heard the script, they agreed and we needed to juggle dates and squeeze two full days out of their busy schedule. Being actors coming from the world of theatre, we needed to be extremely precise, prompt and most importantly organised to get things done”.
Directed by Varun Bajaj, Bar Stools is co-directed by Neale Hemrajani with music by Naresh Sharma.
