Actor Sayani Gupta- starrer short film Shameless is on it’s way to enter the Oscars race in the Live Action short film category, and of course she is ecstatic at this development. “Honestly, we got the news a while back. Because of the pandemic, it’s been very different, and we didn’t know what’s the right way to go about it. We were going up in the list of the top five films that could qualify, and praying it would make it. Finally it did, and we thought ‘should we share it, I don’t want to jinx it!’ But it’s out, and it’s great,” she laughs.
The 35-year-old, who has been a part of films such as Margarita With a Straw (2015), Fan (2016) and Jolly LLB 2 (2017), though doesn’t get too carried away with all this. She says, “I am very unaffected with them. Even when International Emmy (nomination ( happened (for Four More Shots please!), I was like ‘okay’. The director of Shameless Keith Gomes is very excited. Also, when you make a short film, we made it with literally a very small budget, it’s a tiny film. And there are just few actors.”
