The Indian content market is booming and the true mark of this is the inventiveness of concepts that makers are exploring. Sanjay Suri plays a professional cuddler in Sanjeev Vig's next short film, titled call Him Eddy. The concept of professional cuddling is unheard of in India, and that’s what will make the film’s subject a novel one.
Sanjeev Vig catapulted himself to acclaim with Rogan Josh starring Naseeruddin Shah. Filled with melancholy, the hard-hitting film went on to win the Filmfare Award for Best Short Film (fiction) in (2019).
Producer of Savera Films, Pooja Jain, said, “Short films have become a major market. Stories aren’t limited by their size anymore. Sanjay Suri is playing Eddy, the professional cuddler and Sanjeev has attempted to deal with this subject with great finesse.
Sanjay Suri added, "At a time when I was already in space of thinking how the Virtual world has impacted human relationships and communication, a script like "Call Him Eddy" comes to me. It was love at first read! I told the director this film must be made with or without me. Am fortunate that I got to play Eddy. We listen to words before we feel them, a cuddle needs no words!
