Filmmaker Vivek Agnihotri, who is in the midst of pre-production work of his uocoming film The Kashmir Files, is running from pillar to post to ensure smooth sailing of its shooting schedules which he has chalked out. In doing so, the filmmaker is procuring all the required permissions from the concerned legal authorities, which in turn has made him travel quite a bit in the recent past.
The story goes that Vivek had an appointment with few government officials in the capital yesterday but all hell broke loose when he reached Mumbai airport and saw a long queue at the Corona Testing Counter.
While he patiently waited for his turn, he witnessed an elderly lady standing much behind him and requesting people ahead of her to let her go first. But, nobody was allowing her!
Vivek almost immediately started slamming people, giving them a good lecture about humanity at Mumbai.
The lady in question (who was traveling alone) was extremely moved, when Vivek next offered her his place in queue- and not just that, he then went on to request the on-ground airline crew to help her in moving ahead on her way to the flight.
When contacted, Vivek said, "The administration process at the airports have changed considerably and for the good. The coronavirus scare has led to long queues at the airport and the passengers have to adhere to the new hygiene protocols.That was the need of the hour, but I was a little taken aback to see that nobody was willing to help her. It was just a natural reaction, and understanding the seriousness of the situation and also for the sake of humanity. If we are in a position to help others, we should do that. For me, it's a matter of happiness that I was able to help that elderly lady."
