Written and helmed by Maitreyi Bajpai and Rameez Khan, Carbon is a futuristic film that is set in 2067. Jackky will be seen essaying the role of a man with an artificial heart, while Nawazuddin will be seen playing the role of a person from Mars. In an earlier interview with a leading daily, Nawazuddin had said, “When Jackky and the team came to me with the script, I was very kicked with the idea of playing a guy who lives on Mars. And the fact that the film has its heart in the right place and makes all the right noises about environmental issues, was reason enough for me say yes right away.”
Carbon will be released on Large Short Films’ YouTube channel. The date is yet to be announced.
