Short Kut is a heartwarming slice-of-life comedy about the trials and tribulations of two con artists, a struggling actor-director and the odd situations they face in the pursuit of their Tinsel town dreams.

Shekhar, an aspiring assistant director, and Raju, a wannabe junior artiste, meet each other while struggling to make it in the film industry. While Shekhar is supremely talented and confident, Raju is a buffoon who thinks he’s God’s gift to Bollywood.

As luck would have it, Raju manages to steal Shekhar’s prized script and is catapulted to super-stardom. Following this incident, Shekhar plunges into a phase of self-pity and dejection, which results in his wife leaving him. Shattered, Shekhar is now looking for that golden chance to get even with Raju.

What follows is a tale of con, deceit, stardom and subsequent failure.
