The world has come to a screeching halt as a result of the corona virus outbreak. As the country enters lockdown 5.0 of the nation-wide lockdown which is actually ‘Unlock-1’, Bollywood actor Karan Aanand has made a short film during the lockdown named AAINA. The film is meant to stress on the importance of staying at home, staying safe, working from home, and most importantly paying to the daily wage workers and house cleaners. AAINA premiered across the globe through Youtube on Monday at 9 p.m. on 8June 2020.
Talking about the film Karan said, ”This is my first short film and I’m very excited. We have shot this film in the pandemic and lockdown situation without breaking the rules and regulations of the government. The film is shot by ourselves and even I and the actress did not meet each other. The film is based on the fight of a couple during the lockdown and the work-related problems that our daily wage workers face. So I would request everyone to watch the film and learn the importance of our daily wage workers.”
The entertainment industry has rallied behind daily wage workers, its worst-hit section during the lockdown, with financial support and essentials. Film ‘Aaina’ aims to capture the importance of paying the daily wage workers and house cleaning staff.
