ONE of India’s leading actors, Shakti Singh has produced a short film titled, ‘The Shoe Shine Boy’ – a tribute to every patriotic Indian, and mother of each Indian whose patriotism is unquestionable. Shot on a railway station platform, this memorable film depicts an electrifying conversation between a young boy and an Indian Army soldier. This film also thus pays homage to the 20th Anniversary of ‘Kargil Vijay Diwas.’
Born on October 9, 1955, Shakti Singh also specializes in dubbing foreign films into Hindi language. His mesmerizing performance as Mansukh Virani in blockbuster TV show, ‘Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi’ won the heart of fans across the country almost two decades back.
‘The Shoe Shine Boy’ is highly expected to an extraordinarily successful as we are witnessing a digital revolution with millions of web users watching short films as they become the standard communication tool promoting values, culture and business ethics.
The ‘josh’ for patriotic films is currently ‘high’ in Bollywood. After the grand success of Uri: The Surgical Strike, Hindi movie buffs can soon gear up to watch Kesari, Major, RAW, Batla House, Panipat, Saare Jahaan Se Accha, Mission Mangal, 83 and a biopic on Kargil war hero Vikram Batra, among others. In such a scenario a patriotic film like ‘The Shoe Shine Boy’ is likely to shine out amongst short films aimed at igniting true nationalism amongst Indians.
