Actor Arsh Bajwa, who featured in Taapsee Pannu and Amit Sadh starrer "Running Shaadi", has bagged the lead role in the short film titled "The Struggle".
The film is being helmed by debutante director Chase MacAnear.
Excited about the project, Arsh said in a statement: "The film came to me by luck. I met the makers on Instagram first time and I was finalised over social media itself.
"Chase MacAnear wrote the story after getting inspired from the real life incident which happened with his Indian friend."
Arsh said his role is that of a migrant.
"The story is about an Indian man who migrates to the US illegally due to financial crisis. The film will depict his struggles and how he paves his road to success in the foreign land," he added.
"The Struggle" will release in March.
