Actor Manoj Bajpayee will narrate the documentary COVID-19: India’s War Against the Virus in Hindi on Discovery Plus.
The documentary will provide a rare glimpse into all the key steps being taken across the country to battle the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
It will follow both, the global and the Indian timeline, of how the virus spread and will shine light on important developments that have taken place ever since country’s first coronavirus victim was detected in Kerala in January.
Shot extensively during the period of lockdown, the documentary tells the story through interviews with subject matter experts, front line workers, patients, migrant workers, and others working tirelessly behind the scenes to arrest the spread of this deadly disease.
The film will also highlight the way technology is being used to combat the virus.
While Manoj Bajpayee will provide the Hindi voiceover for the documentary, writer-director Gautham Vasudev Menon will do the Tamil voiceover.
“Meaningful cinema, meaningful projects have always endeared me, and I believe specials like ‘COVID-19: India’s War Against The Virus’ are relevant not just for today but will continue to engage our future generations as well,” said Bajpayee.
