Actress Shweta Tripathi says she is always on a lookout for characters that break the stereotype, and make a mark.Shweta found a similar spark in her role in the upcoming short film "Laghushanka", directed by Nikhil Mehrotra."When I heard the narration for the first time from Nikhil, I was completely glued to it. As an actor I am always drawn to stories that break the mold and ‘Laghushanka' was one such instance," Shweta said."Using humour and a small-town setting, the short film dwells on a significant human concern at its core that's still clouded by stereotypes. I would love to do more stories like these which, when you watch, leave you with a warm feeling in your heart," she added.The film is about a young girl and her problem of bed-wetting. According to Nikhil, "Laghushanka" has a real-life relevance."I used to know this girl in my neighborhood in Bihar who had the same issue of bed-wetting. While it seemed funny at the outset, I remember the embarrassment the girl faced and the constant bullying she suffered. I was very young then, but it has stayed with me. This film is a lighthearted yet sincere attempt to bring to focus this issue and brush off the labels that come with it," he said.The film will be stream on SonyLIV from October 16.
