A number of well-loved celebrities from Pakistan have gathered for a short film called A Call to Action to Raise Awareness of the Coronavirus Pandemic.
Those featured in the film include Hamza Ali Abbasi, Humayun Saeed, Reema, Shehzad Roy, Ali Rehman Khan, Zara Noor Abbas, Maya Ali, Anwar Maqsood, Bilal Maqsood, Sheheryar Munawar, Wasim Akram, Shaniera Akram, Ayesha Omar, Iqra Aziz, Yasir Hussain and Mikaal Zulfiqar. The movie follows them as they talk to each other on the phone. Although the conversation seems to be like the one anyone would have with their friend or family on the phone, each dialogue has a message behind it.
For example, Shehzad Roy talks about the importance of continuing to wash your hands, while Iqra says, “Fasla rakhain, kaheen corona na ho jaye.” Ayesha Omar expresses her annoyance at the unverified WhatsApp messages. The dialogues are fun, short and witty.
