The lack of job opportunities is the theme of the upcoming family drama Nam Gani B.Com Pass. The film, produced by Nagesh Kumar, also highlights the problems faced by those who are not fluent in English. The story was conceived by debutant director Abhishek Shetty, who has previously worked as a dialogue writer and associate director in several films. 

According to Abhishek, who is also the hero of the film, the film deals with this serious issue humorously. “The testing times for every youth comes after college. What happens when a youngster fails to take up responsibility is the crux of Nam Gani...

Direction has always been Abhishek's passion, and he says he turned actor by accident. “When I pitched the story to the producer, we tried to rope in a hero for months. Due to remuneration and call sheet issues, we couldn't finalise any actor. I used to act in my own short films and that experience came in handy. Producer Nagesh Kumar, who had watched my performances, felt that I could pull off the role and allowed me to play the role.”

According to Aishani Shetty, who plays the female lead, Nam Gani B.Com Pass deals with a timeless subject. “When has the society stopped talking about job security, peer pressure, and how youth take their lives forward after graduation?” asks Aishani, adding that every youngster can connect to the story. “Not just youngsters, even parents will relate to the film. This is a story about middle-class values. Blending the general issue with comedy is what makes it entertaining,” she says.

Nam Gani B.Com Pass will show Aishani in two shades — a schoolgirl and a grown-up. “The role of a schoolgirl, who has a crush on this college guy, took me back 15 years, and I am seen with two braids, school uniform, and shining shoes. I enjoyed bringing out the innocence of this character,” she says.
