Danseuse Savitha Sastry and filmmaker AK Srikanth’s short film,  Arangetram, is releasing on September 2. This short, the makers claim, is a throwback to the cinema of breezy comedies such as  Chupke Chupke, Angoor, and  Golmaal. It is also an attempt to popularise Bharatanatyam. The short film, which will be up on Savitha’s YouTube channel (Savitha Sastry) and her Instagram page (savitha_sastry), features several Tamil cinema and television artistes, including Kausalya Natarajan and Zeeba Ashrin. According to the makers, the film revolves around an “apartment-dwelling middle class” family and conveys how age should never be a bar to go after one’s dreams. Savitha and Srikanth’s production company previously made  DescentBeyond the RainsDvija and  The Colors Trilogy.
