The celebs featured in a 4-minute-37-seconds long short film which revolved around Amitabh Bachchan not being able to find his sunglasses and his entire filmy family gets busy looking for his ‘kala chasma’.
At the end of the short, the 77-year-old actor said artistes from several industries came together to make the film, but no one stepped out of their house.
“Every artiste shot their own section in their own house. You too, please stay indoors. That’s the only way to keep yourself safe from the dangerous coronavirus. Stay indoors, stay safe.”
The initiative is supported by Sony Pictures Networks India and Kalyan Jewellers.
