The video features tragic incidents that took place during the lockdown. It draws reference from a video wherein a child was seen sleeping on a suitcase while his mother dragged him, hoping to reach home on foot. We are also reminded of two other horrors that we witnessed during this period - migrant labourers sleeping on the platform being run over by a freight train and a toddler trying to wake his dead mother up.

Sharing the video, Taapsee wrote, “Pravaasi. A series of pictures that probably will never leave our mind. The lines that will echo in our head for a long time. This pandemic was worse than just a viral infection for India”.

Taapsee currently has three projects in mind - Rashmi Rocket, Haseen Dillruba and Shabaash Mithu.
