Indian born Actor and Filmmaker Karan Choudhary’s new short film “Swiped Out” is going into production this fall
Karan Choudhary’s new film “Swiped Out” is a short comedy which is about to go into production this fall. The story of the film challenges the old-fashioned way of falling in love with the rise of dating apps and all they have to offer. In today’s day and age, dating apps are becoming the new norm of finding the perfect partner to fall in love with. But are they actually helpful or just distracting you from focusing on one person? Because the amount of options they through to you to swipe.
Centred on Neil, a young Indian man under pressure from his traditional Indian mother to settle down, “Swiped Out” takes us on a journey into the online dating world of Tinder to find the perfect match. But not everything is what it seems in this hilarious take on dating apps and the untold dramas of finding true love. Despite getting help from his 2 roommates, Neil discovers how things are not as easy as he thought. After all, falling in love is never perfect, and it’s ‘easier said than swiped.’
