For the first time in Indian film history, high profile actors such as Rajinikanth, Amitabh Bachchan, Mammootty, Mohan Lal, Ranbir Kapoor, Chiranjeevi, Alia Bhatt, Priyanka Chopra featured in a short film to create awareness. The most special thing about the four minute long short film is, that none of the actors stepped out of their home but managed to tell us a humorous story, in a way of creating awareness to make people stay home.
Titled as “Family”, it also features Prosenjit Chatterjee, Shiv Rajkumar, Sonali Kulkarni and Diljith Dosanjh. The short film’s plot revolves around Amitabh Bachan misplacing his pair of dark glasses and everyone’s attempt to find it. All the actors shot their part at their homes respectively.
At the end of the film, Amitabh Bachan explains why and how they shot the short film. He called the entire Indian film industries as “Family” and said that the film fraternity would make donations to daily wage workers of the film industry, who are the most affected by the coronavirus lockdown. Sharing the video, Amitabh Bachan wrote “When you see that the cause is greater than the idea you dreamt of .. there is just immense joy and gratitude for all my colleagues and friends in the making of this historic effort ! WE ARE ONE and WE SHALL OVERCOME ! Jai Hind !”
