Now Mahul is coming up with his next short film Postit. The film has made it to the official selections: Best Shorts Competition, California, Global Film Festival Awards (US) and 8th Dada Saheb Phalke Film Festival, Mumbai 2018 and expecting some more this month. For Postit!, the thought had germinated in his mind two years back at Cannes Film Festival during the screening of his first short film Elixir. The first cut of the story was written mid-air — on a boarding pass as that was the only piece of paper available.

‘Direction is a different ballgame altogether. And yes, it was a surreal experience directing a ghost, and yes played by yours truly’, said Mahul. This is a micro short film of 3 min 50 seconds.

This is a unique love story where the two lovers are separated by death but they find a unique way to communicate – through Post-Its. This film captures a day in their life over a fight on which film they will watch together – François Truffaut’s Shoot the Piano Player or Akira Kurosawa’s Rashomon.

Sabiya Sinha Roy has shot the movie with an iPhone and edited it in iMovies. She is also the co-producer of the film.
