Bollywood actor Richa Chadha has shot a science-fiction short film titled 55 kms/sec at home. The coronavirus induced lockdown has not only put everybody on house-arrest but has also made people do things that they wouldn’t otherwise. Like actor Richa Chadha, who shot for a science-fiction film at home. She, and the other actors in the film were assisted by director-writer Arati Kadav on lighting, camera angles. Furthermore, scene compositions as they shot with their phones.
Talking about 55 kms/sec, Richa said in a statement, “Arati is an engineer turned filmmaker. She has an interesting vision. She is good at science fiction stuff as well as portraying human connections. I loved collaborating with her and actor Mrinal Dutt. This was a challenging shoot as we had to do everything ourselves, from hair and makeup to recording sound. But it was well worth the effort. I am happy that we were able to create something thought-provoking and beautiful even in these grim times.”
However, 55 kms/sec is about living in a world that is on edge. Besides Richa Chadha, the short film saw several people joining forces.

It was a great idea. My team and I saw it as a way of continuing to work to cheer ourselves up. I met some spectacular and fantastic people on our virtual set. We are happy that we all could remotely come together for something that was a warm, beautiful, humbling, and unifying experience.”
Furthermore, team coordinated through video calls on a daily basis. With the director making extensive storyboards to show how she wanted the scenes to look like. It will be very interesting to see that how this short film will make its impact on audience.
