Joys of Thai ocean for Shortkut

The cast and crew of Shortkut loose their way in the Thai ocean whilst shooting for the song sequence 'Pal Pal'.

While the title track of Shortkut is creating waves due to its popularity with listeners, its second track, Pal Pal has been tickling everyone’s funny bones thanks to Arshad Warsi's berserk dance moves.

The Pal Pal song shot in picturesque Bangkok sees Amrita Rao grooving on a yacht. What most people don’t know is that while the song was being shot the yacht lost its direction and the entire crew along with choreographer Bosco were lost in the ocean!

To add to their misery, it started raining. To prevent a panic, Arshad gathered everyone and started dancing on the yacht and in minutes, a stranded ship turned into a film party for the entire crew!

The incident is Amrita’s favourite memory from the film:

'The atmosphere was transformed! One moment we were all seriously shooting and next we were dancing on-board. It was a perfect finish to our schedule in Bangkok and I couldn’t have asked for a better wrap experience!' she said smiling.

Shortkut will see a UK cinema release in July by Studio18 based in London. Dedicated film fans can catch a glimpse of the trailer currently being screened with the Kambakkht Ishq feature.
