In our weekly roundup of the most significant goings-on in the Hindi and Punjabi film industry, we bring you the dope on what's hot and what's not.

In a collaboration, many prominent actors from India's film industry have worked together on a short film titled Family during the current coronavirus-related lockdown in India. 

It features popular film artists from Bollywood like Amitabh Bachchan, Ranbir Kapoor, Alia Bhatt and Priyanka Chopra along with south Indian superstar Rajinikanth and Punjabi singer-actor Diljit Dosanjh.

The film, just under five minutes, has been shot inside their homes by people around them. 

It gives the message of abiding by the lockdown and staying at home to stay safe amidst the pandemic that has brought the whole world to a halt.
