The video shared by Taapsee Pannu is a collage of several real-life instances where a girl cycled her ailing father, a toddler woke up next to his dead mother on a railway station, hundreds of migrants walking several miles to reach home and people who tied in stuffed trains out of heatstroke and hunger. Well, we certainly are troubled by this sad reality.
Meanwhile, several celebrities like Sonu Sood, Amitabh Bachchan, Swara Bhasker and others have been doing their bit in making arrangements to send these migrants back home amid the COVID-19 induced lockdown across India.
