Actor and casting director Abhishek Banerjee, who is known for Stree and Patal Lok, released his short film Sex, Likes & Stories on Thursday. The 12-minute-long psychological thriller poses the question, “In the world of social media are you the consumer or are you getting consumed?”
Sharing the trailer on Instagram, Abhishek Banerjee wrote, “Did this short a while back .. you guys can watch it on YouTube. Thank you @keithgomes.w for this whacky one!! It’s time to get real! Sex, Likes & Stories out now on YouTube/ @ KeithGomes! Link in bio.”

(What nonsense is this brother, if he is a good actor, he is just sex lust fund, show all this, there is no content other than this, do something like the way you do in women and pataal people… That character complexity was good but this is shit).”
