The entertainment industry is one of the most badly affected industries due to the pandemic. But, that has not let down the spirits of our actors, who have come together for a beautiful short film Goonj. Vijayendra Kumeria who is currently playing the main lead in Ekta Kapoor's Naagin 4 is also a part of this thirteen-minute short film. Talking about the film titled Goonj, Vijayendra said, "It's a message-oriented short film which symbolises that when people of our industry collectively voice out their plight and problems, it might result in an echo in the ears of the authorities. That's what the director thought while choosing the title.”
Sharing the story line which has a strong message to convey, Vijayendra reveals, "The video starts with him calculating his expenses (rent, car EMI, electricity, etc.) and then he checks his account balance. The video 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 boy. It then features other actors talking about the industry that has been entertaining us since the past 108 years and nobody is even bothered about them during this time".
Vijayendra says that this short film is the director’s brainchild and he had contacted a lot of actors, who have a good social media following, but not many did not show interest. He said, “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,”.
