Some days ago, a streak of celebrities, including Ranbir Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, Priyanka Chopra, Dil Dosanjh and Amitabh Bachchan, got featured in a short film to spread awareness on the Coronavirus pandemic, social distancing and also to raise funds for all the daily wage earners. The film, named Family, saw superstars from several parts of the Indian film industry, coming together to search for Big B’s glasses and eventually ended on a positive note. Interestingly, everyone’s parts were shot in their respective houses by their friends or family members.
The director of this short film Prasoon Pandey, who is a popular ad filmmaker by profession, spilt the beans on this unique concept and who shot for whom. In an interview with afaqs, Prasoon confessed that Priyanka Chopra’s scene was shot by her hubby Nick Jonas, as the couple is self-isolating in Los Angeles. Alia Bhatt, on the other hand, got behind the lens for boyfriend Ranbir Kapoor and vice-versa. Lastly, Amitabh Bachchan was shot by his son Abhishek Bachchan.
The filmmaker said, “Amitabh Bachchan was shot by Abhishek Bachchan, Alia was shot by Ranbir who was then shot by Alia, Priyanka Chopra was shot by Nick Jonas, and Rajinikanth was shot by his daughter Soundarya Rajinikanth.”
Check out the short film here:
Prasoon also revealed that it were lovebirds Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt who suggested him to make the film pan-India and also feature superstars from other industries. Then it was Amitabh Bachchan who spoke to artists from the other film fraternities and they loved the concept.
