You can clearly never go wrong with a love story – going by the fantastic response that Y-Films, Yash Raj Films’ youth wing has received to their anthology of short films titled ‘Love Shots’ that opened with ‘The Road Trip’ starring Nimrat Kaur & Tahir Raj Bhasin and ‘Koi Dekh Lega’ featuring Saqib Saleem & Shweta Tripathi. The 3rd short film in the series ‘Textbook’ shows you how you can never be too young to be in love. Set in Class VI C of a kendriya vidyalaya, the story introduces YRF’s youngest romantic leads – the super talented Shravani Desai and Shubham Tukaram along with the multi-talented Swanand Kirkire as the oppressive Prof. O. P. Sharma sir!
Directed by Ankur Tewari, the film features original music composed & performed by the Gaurav Dagaonkar featuring Divya Kumar. A fun Rajasthani pop song titled ‘Pyaar Bubblegum’.
Adds Gaurav Dagaonkar, the composer, “Working on Pyaar Bubblegum was like enjoying a free period in school when the teacher doesn’t turn up…absolute fun! Anurag’s lyrics and Divya Kumar’s funky desi vocals made the song really colourful. But the best part was shooting the video in school uniforms…took all of us back in time when life was innocent and blissful! Kudos to Y-films for pushing the envelope by having a soundtrack on this unique and fun web series!”
The music for Love Shots is exclusively available on Wynk music for a period of 3 days before its release. Mr. Srini Gopalan – Director – Consumer Business, Airtel, says, “Airtel has been a pioneer in the Indian telecom industry and is leading the 4G growth story in the country. Smartphones and fast mobile internet have transformed the way we consume content, with video emerging as the most popular form.
Consumers, in particular, the multi-tasking youth, are looking for engaging video content to snack on and we believe Love Shots from YRF will set a new benchmark in short storytelling. As the leading smartphone network, Airtel is very excited to be a part of this innovative project.”
