Excited about the screening, Oberoi says, “Mehak is a talent to watch out for, who deserves all the glory and success. The film will be a great beginning to bigger and better things for her. It’s all credit to Mehak that our short has been selected for a screening at the IFFM.” Interestingly, Bad Egg was the first film Oberoi shot for when filming resumed post the lockdowns. “I think it was gutsy to make this film [at such a time]. Short films don’t have big budgets, so we all had to be responsible as a team and work in tandem,” adds the actor.

Without divulging much about the film, Oberoi promises the story is “full of mystery and unpleasant surprises”. “I’m looking forward to the audience response at the IFFM 2022.” Bad Egg is about a how a daughter unfolds the mystery behind the kidnapping of her sister.
