Actor Vijayendra Kumeria has featured in a short film titled "Ghoonj", on how some actors are trying to help each other during the coronavirus crisis.

" Goonj' is a message-oriented short film. It symbolises that when people of our industry collectively voice out their plight and problems, it might result in an echo in the ears of authorities. That's what the director thought while choosing the title," said Vijayendra.

He shared that from channels, producers and stars, to the junior technicians, everybody in the TV industry is affected in some way.

"We are still in a comfortable position and are trying our best to help our industry workers in whatever way we can. But for how long?"

"The whole industry is running on a 90-day credit period. Labour laws aren't followed. Our industry is the most ignored one in times of calamities. The film industry generates a big amount of tax but still is neglected the most. I think the government should think about relief programmes, better tax policies and implementation of proper labour laws," he added.

Directed by Ghanshyam Pathak, the short film also features Paintal, Lilliput, Manas Shah, Mona Mokha, Monaz Mevawalla and Shardul Pandit, among others.

The video starts with Vijayendra calculating his expenses (rent, car EMI, electricity, etc) and then he checks his account balance.

It shows how some actors are trying to help each other during this crisis, but what about those working on the lower level, like the spot boys? The film then features other actors talking about the industry that has been entertaining people for long but nobody is even bothered about them during this time.

Vijayendra said that this short film is the director's brainchild.

"I extended my support because his intention was not to show his creativity or to appeal to people to raise donations. It's for voicing out a message on behalf of the industry," he added.
