Actor Siddhant Issar gives tribute to grandfather Sudesh Issar in his debut film Resurrection - Jaago Aur Jiyo
Actor Siddhant Issar, who is all set to mark his screen debut with a short film titled Resurrection- Jaago Aur Jiyo, says it is a tribute to his grandfather Sudesh Issar. It looks like history has repeated itself in 2020 as his grandfather directed India’s first film on suicide prevention titled Sauda in 1973 which starred the late actor Vinod Khanna and Yogeeta Bali in the lead roles.
Besides playing the titular role in the film, Siddhant has written and directed the film.
The actor has also excelled in theatre over the years where he acts on stage as Duryodhan in India’s Most successful live theatre play Mahabharat- An Epic Tale.
While the debut actor wanted to make this movie as an inspirational video for Facebook but when he shared this story with his father Puneet Issar, he felt this story needs to be told in a bigger way and encouraged me to make a proper 20-min short film.
Resurrection - Jaago Aur Jiyo is based on suicide prevention and mental health wellness during the lockdown and Covid Pandemic with an interesting supernatural twist to it. The short film is slated to release on Showman Theatre Productions YouTube Channel on August 25th, 2020.
