Amitabh Bachchan, Rajinikanth, PeeCee, and others come up with a short film on coronavirus:
Yesterday, a short film was released on Sony TV and it has been trending since then, the short film is titled Family that spreads awareness about coronavirus outbreak. The film discusses the importance of staying indoors in time of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The made at home short film features various actors including Rajinikanth, Amitabh Bachchan, Mohanlal, Mammootty, Chiranjeevi, Priyanka Chopra, Ranbir Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, Prosenjit Chatterjee, Shiva Rajkumar, Sonalee Kulkarni, and Diljit Dosanjh – and it revolves around Amitabh Bachchan’s misplaced pair of dark sunglasses and everyone’s attempts to find it. Every actor shot their part of the film at their homes, respectively.
At the end of the short film, Big B called the Indian film industry a “Family” and said that the film fraternity would make donations to daily wage workers of the film industry, who are heavily affected by coronavirus lockdown.
Sharing the video, Amitabh Bachchan tweeted: “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!”

Every actor speaks in his or her language and makes the film a light-hearted watch, with an important message. Rajinikanth even pulls off his signature sunglass-act during his part of the film.
This is so amazing! So brilliantly and cleverly told! So rightfully said that we are one huge family! A family that creates and entertains! We stand by each other through thick and thin! Salute to @SrBachchan and the entire team of actors and creators for making this!❤️❤️❤️ https://t.co/XcNbunGQCs
