Actress Shweta Tripathi’s film Zoo, directed by Shlok Sharma is selected for ‘A window on Asian Cinema’ category at the Busan Film festival. The film, produced by Anurag Kashyap and Vikramaditya Motwane, is India’s first feature film to be completely shot on iPhone 6.

The film also stars Shashank Arora, who was last seen in Lipstick Under My Burkha. It explores lives of drug addict teenagers who are trapped in their own hell. Shweta plays the role of a young teenager by the name of Misha Mehta, who blames herself for an accident that happened a few years ago and finds solace in addiction of drugs as she tries to escape her emotions.

Shweta, Shlok and Anurag last collaborated for Haaramkhor which was a critically acclaimed and was also screened at a few film festivals. Talking about it Shweta said, “I always wanted to be a part of films which matter and being rewarded by getting recognition from a festival like Busan is something I as an actor work for primarily. I always wanted to be part of experimental cinema and this film gives me exactly that. Shlok is a director who gave me my first feature film I shot but unfortunately it was stuck for various reasons and then he wanted to make another film with me. We started shooting immediately after the release of Haraamkhor.”

She further said, “I like being part of films which set new trends and this being the first film to be shot on an iPhone was very interesting. This role for me for completely different from Masaan and Haraamkhor and that's what drew me to it.”
