MAMI 2019: Teaser of India’s first ever spaceship sci-fi film 'Cargo' releases

India’s first ever homegrown sci-fi spaceship film - Cargo, directed by Arati Kadav is making waves ever since its first look came out. Starring Vikrant Massey and Shweta Tripathi in leading parts, the film takes the audience on a journey with Prahastha (Massey) who plays a demon operating the Post Death Transition services on a space station orbiting earth and his his female astronaut (Tripathi) colleague

A story woven with human emotions and Indian culture set in a quirky whimsical story of after life in space, at its core the film is a warm human drama which is deeply rooted in Indian fables.

Talking about the same, Shweta Tripathi said, “As an actor, I want to explore as many genres as possible. So when I got to know there’s a Sci-fi film that has been  written for me, my excitement went through the roof. To be in a world never been seen before, literally up in the stars, made me very curious. And then when I read the script, I was all smiling. From the costumes to the props, everything was meticulously thought of and executed. I felt like a child in Disney land. MAMI has always been super special for me."

Kadav is known for her work in the sci-fi genre and has previously won accolades for her shorts Time Machine and Raavan. 

The film has been produced by Shlok Sharma, Anurag Kashyap, Navin Shetty and Arati Kadav.
