Director Madhur Bhandarkar has finalised the cast of his new film, ‘India Lockdown.’ The project, announced last year, is a pandemic-themed film that will star Prateik Babbar, Sai Tamhankar, Shweta Basu Prasad, Prakash Belawadi, Aahana Kumra, Zarin Shihab and Ayeesha Aimen.
Bhandarkar was inspired by the universal impact of Covid-19 on people of different settings and demographics, reports The New Indian Express. The film is produced by Bhandarkar Entertainment and P J Motion pictures. It will go on floors next week.
In an interview during the early stages of lockdown, Bhandarkar had shared his perspective on the coronavirus crisis. “I was saddened to see the plight of migrant workers across India. As filmmakers, we are all contributing to fight this unexpected crisis. The time has come for everyone to unite and put humanity first,” he said.
