Tirlok Malik, an Emmy-nominated Indian-American filmmaker, has released an inspiring new short film, “To New India with Love,” which explores the theme of youth aspirations. The film recently premiered on the nri film club’s YouTube channel and will then be released on television and on various digital platforms around the world.
He shares who he wants to work with and about his future projects: “One of the scripts I’m currently working on will be the final chapter of Lonely in America. It will be a multi-stare just like Khushiyaan. The story revolves around an aging NRI that has some unfinished business in India. I would like to work with Jeetendra Ji and Dharmendra Ji, with whom I had the pleasure of shooting some commercials for an American food company. My story also has younger leading actors, for whom I have Varun Dhawan, Aditya Roy Kapur, Alia Bhatt and Kiara Advani in mind. For another central role in the film, I would like to cast either Varun Sharma or Krushna Abhishek. “
Regarding the content that he would like to direct in the future, he adds: “I have made all my feature films about the migration conflicts and their effects on human emotions: be it“ Lonely in America ”,“ Khushiyaan ”or“ On Golden Years ”. . It is a topic that is very close to my heart and so I will continue to explore it. I will also work on various socially relevant topics for my upcoming projects. I currently have two feature films and two short films in development (one each in India and one in the US). In addition to the two feature films and two short films that are in development, there are other interesting offers. Let’s see how things work out. We have to wait and see. “
