~Written and directed by Navjot Gulati, Jai Mata Di will go live on 13th May, 2017 at 9 p.m~
This Mother’s day, Terribly Tiny Talkies is coming up with their next short Jai Mata Di starring Shiv Pandit and real life mother-daughter Supriya Pilgaokar and Shriya Pilgaokar together onscreen as mother and daughter for the first time.
Directed by Navjot Gulati (who shot to fame with his YouTube series Best Girlfriend) and produced by Terribly Tiny Talkies, ‘Jai Mata Di’ will go live on the 13th May, 2017 at 9 p.m tentatively.
This humour filled short drama is about a couple, Suraj and Ananya, who are shifting from Bangalore to Mumbai and want to live-in together to kick off a new phase in their relationship. They go house-hunting but can’t just find a house that Ananya likes until they see an apartment which has her heart set on but there is a hitch, the housing society does not allow unmarried couples. Their broker Datta Verma comes to their rescue, he suggests that they pose as brother-sister and call Ananya’s mother’s to come for the society meeting assuring them that they are indeed siblings.
Chintan Ruparel, Co-founder & Chief Creative Officer, and Sharanya Rajgopal, Chief Writer & Creative Producer, Terribly Tiny Talkies says “Mumbai is a funny city. Call it a melting pot, the glamour capital, or simply the most open and safe place to be around. But when it comes to two people living under the same roof without a marriage certificate, it’s not religion, caste, or even the parents that’s the biggest hurdle. It’s a species that dictates the law of the land without really owning it. The Society Secretary. But as they say, there’s nothing mom can’t solve. With that belief on the one hand, and a funny bone in the other, this Mother’s Day, we say Jai Mata Di.”
