Veteran actor Johnny Lever’s daughter, Jamie Lever, is making her acting debut with Kabeer Khurana’s short film, Cuddles. Starring Jamie Lever, Viveck Vaswani and Komal Chhabria, Cuddles will stream on Disney+ Hotstar from December 3.

Cuddles is based on a short story by Larissa Theule (Kafka and the Doll). It is written and directed by Kabeer Khurana and co-written by Avirat Parekh. Speaking about Cuddles, Jamie said: “I was sold on the script when I met Kabeer and understood his vision when he told me the story.

It was difficult for me because I’ve always done comedy and this is a very unique project, very subtle, very real, from the heart, different from all the other things I’ve done in the past. When it comes to comedy you can go over the top and be loud with your performance, but when you have a subject like this, you really have to be subtle, heartfelt and understated to bring out the deep emotions.”

About his choice of actors, director Kabeer said, “Since shorts don’t have a market, the effort is always to not only cast a competent actor who fits the look of the character, but also a familiar face to get the right exposure. Many names were thrown in in the mix, Jamie and Viveck’s names also came up. My mom was a big fan of Jamie’s content, and I thought it would be interesting to have her break the stereotype.”
