Sayani Gupta and Hussain Dalal starred in Keith Gomes' short film titled Shameless. The film is India's official entry in the Live Action Short Film category at the 93rd Oscars which will be held this year. The award ceremony will be held on April 25, 2021. Months before the Oscars, the makers of Shameless released the trailer on social media.
The trailer opens with Hussain, the lead protagonist, constantly ordering food from a delivery service. However, he doesn't seem happy with them. Sayani plays a delivery girl. Towards the end of the trailer, we can see Hussain tied to a chair. Not much about the plot is shown in the trailer. The description of the film reads, "Shameless is about human behaviour and the loss of human spirit caused due to our dependency on technology. A work-from-home guy is trapped by an apologetic delivery girl, raising questions on the issues of entitlement, humanity and empathy towards the migrant class."
