Mind The Gap - a film by Shaun Majumder

So, alright – let’s break it down – for Mind the Gap, a tail of a truly funny train trip - Majumder wore the hat of writer and director. Comedy ensues when a “hot girl” played by Shelby Fenner (Vantage Point, also Majumder’s fiancé) sits next to a sweet elderly man played by Kumar Pallana (The Terminal).  It’s a must see as part of the CBC Atlantic Shorts Gala at this year’s AFF.

Shaun Majumder - as Det. Mahajan in ABC's Detroit 1-8-7

In Detroit 1-8-7 the Burlington, NL born Majumder wears a badge – in the role of Detective Vickram Mahajan.  A cop who cares – a 7- year veteran of the homicide unit and partner to Sgt. Jesse Longford, played by Emmy award winning actor James McDaniel (Edge of America, NYPD Blue).  An incredible cast on this one led by Emmy winner Michael Imperioli (Sopranos).  And there's HUGE buzz around this show – thanks to a healthy balance of drama and funny - it’s already an early favourite with the critics.

No stranger to critical acclaim, the Gemini award winning Majumder gained a great fan base through his hit Canadian show This Hour Has 22 Minutes, and as host and stand-up star of Just for Laughs, but to be certain the September 21st happenings have his STARmeter™ on the rise. Right on Shaun – we salute you!!! SABS
