Taking to Twitter, Tim wrote, "Check out this beautiful Bollywood film from director @VishalBhardwaj that explores what might happen if you could see into the future. Incredible cinematography and choreography, and all #ShotoniPhone."

Vishal Bhardwaj is in charge. Ishaan and Wamiqa Gabbi star in the short film 'Fursat,' which was shot entirely on an iPhone. The 30-minute short film received positive feedback from viewers after it was released on Apple's official YouTube channel.

The film, according to Apple, is a magical story about a man who is so obsessed with controlling the future that he risks losing what he values most in the present. During the lockdown, many directors from various languages experimented with advanced technology-based shooting techniques.

Some actor-directors committed suicide while being locked inside a room. Taking advantage of this opportunity, the tech titans have commissioned notable directors to shoot with smartphones. Vishal Bhardwaj is the most recent addition to the band.

In 'Fursat,' Vishal, known for his aesthetic sensibility, has played with the theme of time travel. Wamiqa Gabbi, a Punjabi actor, rose to national prominence with the Disney Plus Hotstar series 'Grahan' and the Netflix series 'Mai: A Mother's Rage." In Majid Majidi's debut film, 'Beyond the Clouds,' Ishaan Khatter demonstrated his acting chops. The film, directed by Gurmmeet Singh and written by Ravi Shankaran and Jasvinder Singh Bath, failed to wow audiences at the box office.
