Mumbai, Jan 19 (PTI) Filmmaker Arati Kadav's sci-fi short film '55 km/sec' will be debuting on streamer Disney+ Hotstar on Wednesday.

Featuring Richa Chadha, the film is based on 'Cargo' director's script. She shot it during the coronavirus-induced lockdown in 2020.

The movie will also release on 'ShortFilmWindow', an OTT platform founded by Kadav.

The short film takes forward the idea of living in a world stricken with fear as it narrates the story of an asteroid that's about to hit earth.

'I am thankful to Disney + Hotstar and ShortFilmWindow for showering the film with love. The film is called 55 km/sec which is the speed at which the asteroid is making its way to earth,' Kadav said in a statement.

'As we’ve all acclimated to the new normal, the short film was a fun exercise. My team and I saw it as work to cheer ourselves up. Our virtual set was bubbling with new energy. This was a memorable experience for us and I hope the audience showers us with as much love,' she added.

'55 km/sec' was earlier released internationally on Amazon Prime Video US and UK. PTI RB RB BK BK
