Kartik Aaryan is set to excite viewers in a never seen before role in Silvat , a poignant short film. Silvat illustrates how one small decision that was taken can cause a crease (Silvat) in a perfectly smooth life.

The film is set to premiere on Zindagi’s DTH platforms Tata Play, Dish TV and D2H on 12th June at 8 pm .Set in the late 90s, the film tells the story of Noor and Anwar who share a passionate love for each other but are bound by societal norms and fidelity. A saga of forbidden love, it perfectly encapsulates the misery incomplete love brings with it. Starring Kartik Aaryan and Meher Mistry as Anwar and Noor, the film features one of Aaryan’s most laudable performances. Playing a simple neighbourhood tailor, Kartik has beautifully captured the essence of the character.

This social drama is directed by noted filmmaker Tanuja Chandra, who is known for creating female-centric films including movies like Qarib Qarib Single and Dushman. Silvat has been written by Faraz Ansari, who is known to tell stories on social issues like LGBTQ rights through his movies and has been acknowledged for his films Sheer Qorma, Sisak, Stanley Ka Dabba.

Talking about the film’s journey, director Tanuja Chandra said, “I am thrilled that a film that is such a special one for me, is finally going to be seen by audiences on their television screens at home. This is the reason we tell stories – to share them with people, and a love story that’s filled with intensity and emotions is something that invariably speaks to peoples’ own, personal experiences. The sights and sounds of the lanes of South Mumbai filled my senses when we shot Silvat, its melodious music expresses those feelings that characters can’t put into words, and the memorable performances of the leads, Kartik (at the start of his career) and Meher will charm viewers and I hope, bring tears to their eyes, and a project which was conceived with vision and produced with great affection by Zindagi, will create a special place in peoples’ hearts.”
