India Lockdown will depict four parallel stories and the repercussions of the Covid pandemic, starring Shweta Basu Prasad, Aahana Kumra, Prateik Babbar, Sai Tamhankar and Prakash Belawadi.
Sharing the same, filmmaker Madhur Bhandarkar shared, “The entire country was at a standstill, but life had to go on. Witness the untold stories from ground zero! #IndiaLockdown premieres 2nd Dec only on #ZEE5 @jayantilalgada @PenMovies @ZEE5India @prateikbabbar @SaieTamhankar @shweta_official @AahanaKumra @pranavjain27 @ZEE5Global”
The film was announced during the second lockdown and was earlier slated for theatrical release, but things didn’t materialize, and now the filmmaker has opted for digital release.
Written by Amit Joshi and Aradhana Sah with Madhur Bhandarkar, ‘India Lockdown’ explores the lives of disparate characters who are catapulted into an unforeseen dramatic situation instigated by the lockdown due to the corona pandemic.
The four parallel stories explored are that of a father-daughter duo stuck in different cities during a crucial high point in the daughter’s life. A sex worker and the hardships she goes through in her personal and professional life due to the lockdown, a migrant worker who barely can provide bread and butter for his family and an air hostess who, for the first time, has some downtime compelling her to introspect.
