We Are A Family is the brainchild of Ad filmmaker Prasoon Pandey who has directed Amitabh Bahchcan’s  Dr  Fixit commercial. The film conceptualised and virtually directed by Prasoon Pandey had 12 artistes from all over the country and drives the message that staying safe at home and maintaining social distancing can be productive.

Talking about this initiative  T S Kalyanaraman, Chairman and Managing Director, Kalyan Jewellers said, “We are extremely proud and delighted to be part of this initiative that aims to support daily wage workers across the country.  The concept of the film is exceptional and it is great to watch how these respective actors came together and used light-hearted humor to convey a very serious message around COVID-19. We congratulate all the actors on their contribution and telecast of this short film.”

The special part of this short film is that the families of these celebrities were also actively involved in shooting the film on their phones. The director shared the script and screenplay with all the actors which was remarkably executed by the cast. The short film has been shot in old-fashioned black & white format to match the colour tones of interiors across homes.

It is learnt that Pandey sent samples of some home shots to all the actors so that it matches and looks like it has been shot in one house. All of the shooting and final film done in a matter of six days. Of course there times when some actors were asked to reshoot their parts which they were more than happy to do it. Ranbir’s Part was shot by Alia and Alia’s by him. Amitabh Bachchan’s part was shot by Abhishek, Rajnikanth’s part was shot by his daughter Aishwarya and Priyanka’s portion by Nick Jonas.

The film is part of the ‘We Are One’ initiative which is supported by Kalyan Jewellers and Sony Networks Pictures India. This initiative pledges to support 1,00,000 daily wage earners who are most affected by the COVID-19 outbreak. Out of these, Kalyan Jewellers will take responsibility for 50,000 of these workers.

Led by Amitabh Bachchan, the film features celebrities like Rajinikanth, Ranbir Kapoor, Priyanka Chopra Jonas, Alia Bhatt, Chiranjeevi, Mohanlal, Mammootty, Sonali Kulkarni, Shiv Raj Kumar, Prosenjit Chatterjee, and Diljit Dosanjh. It aired on the Sony Network last night at 9 PM.

Meanwhile, let’s all vow to Stay Home & Stay Safe. This too shall pass.

Popular TV star Digangana Suryavanshi, who has this a unique record of  two of her debut Hindi movies namely ‘Jalebi’ and ‘FryDay’ releasing on the same day, seemed to be in an upbeat euphoric mood.

Despite the ongoing stay-at-home confinement’  That’s because the ‘Dollar-wear-the-change’ ad-commercial which she shot with megastar Akshay Kumar is now out and is being widely appreciated by viewers.   Shares the Mahesh Bhatt-discovery  Digangana, speaking exclusively to CineBlitz, “Working with Akshay Kumar Sir was truly amazing. Fortunately, we had shot this ad film a few days before the lockdown. And what’s really amusing and amazing to me is that in the ad I am referred to as the ‘Princess’, which also happens to be the name that my fans fondly gave me. So, there’s that special element to it.”

She further says, “ In fact it’s my first ad film, and I’m so glad that it was with none other than Akshay Sir. Who is known for his consistent super-hit box-office success records,  that too experimenting with diverse contrasting lead roles,  What a charismatic presence. Yet he is so extremely grounded. I would love to work with him again, in a Hindi movie. Hopefully very soon. By sheer coincidence, Akshay Sir’s  upcoming action-thriller movie is titled ‘Sooryavanshi’, which also happens to be my family surname,” she smiles with a rosy blush on her cheeks.

Since optimistic Digangana  has experienced the ‘Bigg Boss-9’ spacious house and garden-area confinement a few years ago, she was apparently aware, as to how to creatively reconcile with a ‘lockdown’ situation. .Minus the volatile showdown conflicts, of course. Elaborates the style-savvy ‘Hippi’ actress, “Although the reason for social lockdown is absolutely unfortunate, I think it’s given us all a lot of time to introspect. I’ve always been a creative person, and since I’m getting time being offshoots right now, I Am investing my time in catching up with my hobbies. I haven’t had the time to paint for a long time, and now that I do, I’ve created quite a few classy artworks. Am exploring my musical side as well.”

The multi-talented Digangana has even written stories and song about Covid-19

She says, “I have expressed my outlook on the current situation. Spending lots of ‘quality-time’ conversing with both my parents at home and on cell-phone with my outstation relatives,” shares Digangana

The actress who has been working in South Indian  big-banner  regional movies  is now discreetly gearing up to also feature in her fourth Hindi movie with a top-male star very soon.
