In Shailendra Singh’s Kache Din, multiple award winner and India’s most beloved theater and film actor, Deepak Dobriyal gives a gripping performance as a migrant taxi driver, barely earning enough to eat on the unfinished, congested streets of Mumbai City. While trying to keep a distance, but ultimately getting pulled in to the lives of his passengers, he also has a run in with a police officer, played by the indelible Yashpal Sharma. Late at night, he shares a harrowing encounter with a slick pimp, Ashrut Jain, and his lady of the night, Teena Singh. A lunch box left behind in the cab leads him to a life-changing encounter the next morning. “It’s called the Maximum City,” says Shailendra, “but Mumbai is still a work in progress. The taxi driver knows that each of his passengers is just trying to get by in this struggle of a life, just like he is. They are all just like the city they live in, a little bit raw.”

The film has been edited by National Award winning editor Arun Kumar Aravind and has won various laurels at film festivals across the globe including ‘Special Festival Mention’ at the 2018 Dada Saheb Phalke Film Festival, ‘Best Foreign Short Film’ and ‘Best Director ‘ at 2018 Northern Virginia International Film Festival, and ‘Best Short Film’ at Virgin Spring Cinefest, amongst many others.

Salute The Mumbai Police with Tribute Video by Rishi Sethia and Shailendra Singh

In these unprecedented times of global pandemic, there are countless numbers of essential workers that are risking their lives each and every day to keep Mumbai and it’s citizens safe. And while many residents are doing their part by simply staying at home, some of them are making the most of the time, using their skills sets to thank those who are keeping them safe.

Good friends, Rishi Sethia, the powerful business known as the Architect Behind Modern Power Collectives like Annabel’s in London, had joined hands with Shailendra Singh, India’s Serial Entrepreneur and Inceptor of Percept Ltd, Sunburn, Guestlist4Good and Boss Entertainment, to produce and release a tribute video that celebrates and salutes the Maharashtra State Police and Mumbai Police.

Says Sethia, “The brave young women and men of the Mumbai Police are out every day and night maintaining order and protecting our city. Not all heroes wear capes, many of them wear uniforms and badges and Shailendra and I felt it important to let them know just how much we appreciate them. I am sure we speak for the entire city when we say, ‘Thank You!’”

The two-minute long tribute video features a wide array of Mumbai Police Constables across the Maximum City, fulfilling their daily range of duty. It offers a glimpse in to the hardships they face, but also the pride they have in their work and the gratitude from citizens who offer their own salutes. It is set to a unique and uplifting version of Vande Mataram, composed by Saleel Kulkarni – Marathi music compser, singer and poet – and sung by Aarya Ambekar – Marathi playback singer, finalist on the first ever season of Sa Re Ga a Marathi Little Champs and youngest recipient of the Manik Varma Scholarship. The video is edited by Manan Kothari.

Says Singh, who wrote and directed the film, “I was inspired to give the entire country a glimpse in to the extraordinary work that the Maharashtra State Police and the Mumbai Police are doing, often while being unable to stay in their homes or visit their own families. Through this video, Indians everywhere are standing up and saluting these brave warriors.”
