Unpaused: Raj-DK's Journey From 500 Minutes Of The Family Man To 20 Minutes Of Glitch- EXCLUSIVE
Raj-DK, as the duo likes to be called, have now made a short film entitled Glitch which will be part of the omnibus Unpaused to be released on Amazon on 18 December.

Speaking on the  experience of making a short film Raj Nidimoru says, “This is our first short film and quite an experience because we went straight from 500 minutes of The Family Man Season 2 to 20 minutes for Glitch.”

Raj admits it was not easy making Glitch. “We  had to economize on the time but not on the quality. We made Glitch right after the lockdown relaxed but with the strictest of guidelines, masks on, sanitizing, etc. It was the most difficult film we’ve made so far. Because though it was made under the severest of restrictions, we didn’t want it to look in any way compromised. There is no excuse for getting anything wrong just because of Covid restrictions.” ALSO READ: The Family Man Turns 1: Makers Of Manoj Bajpayee Starrer Celebrate By Sharing An Interesting Video, Remind Fans Season 2 Is Coming Soon


Raj and DK’s Glitch stars Gulshan Devaiah and Saiyami Kher. Raj is all praise for them. “They’ve brought so much to the story. It’s a bright sunny film and not a gloomy cheerless Covid drama. It is a visually edifying experience. We’ve done some crazy things with the colours, editing etc. We hope we’ve made the same impact with the  20 minutes of storytelling here as the 500 minutes of storytelling in The Family Man.”
