As the Coronavirus pandemic continues to spread globally, film stars and famous personalities are coming forward with great initiatives and donations to do their bit in fighting the pandemic. Just recently, Sony TV also came up with a made-at-home short film ‘Family’ starring Amitabh Bachchan, Rajnikanth, Ranbir Kapoor, Priyanka Chopra, Alia Bhatt, Chiranjeevi, Mohanlal, Mammootty, Sonali Kulkarni, Shiv Raj Kumar, Prosenjit Chatterjee and Diljit Dosanjh. What makes it unique is that for the first time, the stars shot for the film from their homes, and didn’t step out for filming it, and the fact that they all came together to support the daily wage earners.
The short film revolves around Amitabh Bachchan, and his sunglasses being lost. He then asks Diljit about the same, who goes looking for it. Thus begins the hunt for the glasses, and the camera moves from Diljit to Ranbir Kapoor and other stars. It is brilliantly executed in such a way, you wouldn’t be able to make out that it has been shot at various places. Sharing the 4 minutes-35 seconds short film, Sony TV shared it on their social media handle.
Check it out here:
The short film has been conceptualised and virtually directed by Prasoon Pandey. It was telecast at 9 pm on April 6, that is today, across all channels of Sony Pictures Network. This unique initiative supports the sustenance of daily wage workers associated with the entertainment industry. Social media was flooded with praises for the short film and Netizens thought it was a treat to see such great stars come together for a great cause.
