  • Manjari Fadnis talks about her latest short film, ‘The Cot.’

  • It includes the problems involving in-laws and joint families.

Actress Manjari Fadnis, who essays the protagonist in the short film “The Cot”, says it addresses problems and situations that many people in India experience.

“The Cot” is a humorous story that revolves around the relationship of a newlywed couple and their dilemma of not being able to consummate their marriage as their bed makes a noise every time they try to get intimate.

Manjari told IANS over the phone: “The story of the short film is something that so many people in India live through or experience. When they are living with their in-laws, in a joint family… Especially in small families.

“There are so many issues… Consummating a marriage becomes stressful because you don’t know who is outside, somebody would be hearing… This happens so much. It is a humorously written script of the same.”

However, Majari says when the film was being made, there was no such message that was meant to be given out in an outline.

Manjari has also worked in the short film “Khamakha” in 2016.

On the feature film front, Manjari, who has worked in films like “Jaane Tu… Ya Jaane Na”, “Faltu”, “Mumbai Salsa” and will soon be seen in “Nirdosh” which also features Arbaaz Khan, Ashmit Patel, Maheck Chahal and Mukul Dev. IANS

Union Minister Arun Jaitley today warned that Indians having illegal deposits in Swiss banks would face harsh penal proceedings under the black money law after Switzerland starts real time sharing of details of accounts from January onwards. Latest data from the Swiss National Bank showed that money parked by Indians in Swiss banks rose over 50 per cent to CHF 1.01 billion (Rs 7,000 crore) in 2017, reversing a three-year downward trend amid India’s clampdown on suspected black money stashed by its citizens overseas.

“A news item has appeared today indicating an increase of money by ‘Indians’ in the Swiss banking system. This has led to misinformed reaction in certain circles raising a query whether the government’s anti-black money steps have yielded results,” Jaitley said in a blog. Noting that Switzerland in financial disclosures was always a reluctant state, Jaitley said the Alpine nation has amended its domestic laws involving all disclosures and entered into a treaty even with India and real time flow of information with regard to Indians would be made. “The flow of information is starting in January, 2019. Any illegal depositor knows that it is a matter of months before his name becomes public and he will be subjected to the harsh penal provisions of the black money law in India,” said the senior BJP leader and an eminent lawyer.

Further, Jaitley said those who participate in a public discourse must understand these basic facts before expressing an opinion which may be ill-informed. “To assume that all the deposits are per se tax evaded money or that Switzerland in the matter of illegal deposits is what it was decades ago, is to start on a shaky presumption,” he added.
