Shortkut is a heart-warming, young slice-of-life comedy about the trials and tribulations of two con artists, a struggling director and actor and the zany situations they face in the pursuit of their tinsel-town dreams!

The film revolves around 2 principal characters Shekher (Akshaye Khanna), a struggling assistant director/ script-writer and Chandu (Arshad Warsi), a struggling junior artist. A twist of fate gets them together under one roof as they share a room in a chawl in Mumbai. While Shekhar is supremely talented and confident of his skills, Chandu is a buffoon, a complete non-actor who believes he is God's gift to Bollywood!

As luck would have it, Chandu manages to steal Shekhar's prized script and catapults to super stardom. Following this Shekhar plunges into a phase of self-pity owing to which his wife Mansi (Amrita Rao) also leaves him! Shattered, Shekhar is now looking for his one chance to get even with Chandu.

What follows is a hilarious tale of con, deceit, super-stardom and subsequent fall. Shot in picturesque Bangkok, and featuring Amrita Rao make-over into a hot bombshell, Short Kut comes with a generous dose of laughs as well as emotions that will pull your heart strings and keep you glued to your seat!
