Shortcut is based on cyber crime. Today cyber crimes have become an integral part of our day to day lives and they are increasing in number day by day. To get rich quick and to get instant fame youth of today are misusing ‘the shortcut’ methods. What happens when such shortcuts take you path of crmes and how these repercussions will affect their lives! Vaibhav Tattvavadi plays a hacker in this film. It has a very thrilling storyline and I think youth will be able to connect with this film. I play role of Ishika. She is a college-going girl; this role actually suits my present age.

Luckily, I am not! I don’t have that urge to stay connected at each and every second.

I am already in love with this album. Actually, six composers have given music for this film. Nilesh Mohrir, Sushant Shankar, Premanand, Punit Dixit, Chand Sadhwani and Nick are the music directors. Makhmali, a song composed by Nilesh Mohrir had received so many views on youtube. The album has some nice sift romantic numbers and some foot tapping dance numbers. I hope audience will like these songs.
