NEW DELHI: Filmmaker-actress Divya Khosla Kumar, who will be seen in T-Series' short film "Bulbul", says the format needs to be encouraged.

"'Bulbul' is a short film and I feel short films should be encouraged because it's a medium through which a lot of talent can seep into the industry... Anybody, anywhere in the world can make a short film," Divya told IANS over phone from Mumbai. 

Asked if short movies are easier to work on than feature films, she said: "Yeah, I think definitely. Short films are easier in the sense that they require lesser number of days to shoot. A feature film is huge. Two years of your life go into a feature film."

"Bulbul" is a 25-minute film and has been extensively shot in Shimla. Directed by Ashish Pande, it also features Shiv Pandit and Elli Avram. But what stands out is the fact that it was penned by the late filmmaker Kundan Shah.

"It's a comedy. It's about a girl who is wooing her lover and wants to get him at any cost, and in between, all funny things happen. It's a very bubbly character, very unlike me. It was challenging, but fun.

"'Bulbul' is Kundan Shahji's last piece of work because unfortunately he just passed away in October when we were shooting. It was very sad for us," she said.
