The pandemic has been a tough time for everyone all around the world. Millions have been infected by the dangerous Coronavirus and many have lost their lives to it. With the lockdowns given by the government to keep everyone safe, people have been stuck inside their homes for more than a month now and it can sometimes take a toll on the human mind. Everyone’s been trying to keep themselves safe and at the same time busy by doing the things they love so that they do not get sad and lose hope..
Now Aamir Khan took to social media to talk a little about the ongoing situation in the country. His advice came after winners of the second edition of “Cinestaan India’s Storytellers Script Contest” were announced digitally by Aamir, director Rajkumar Hirani, and writers Anjum Rajabali and Juhi Chaturvedi. In the video of the announcement, Aamir expressed regret that the awards could not be announced at an event because of the lockdown. The first prize of Rs 25 lakh was won by Sejal Pachisia from California, the US, whose story “On The Boundary” got unanimous thumbs-up from the jury members.”The quality of the work was stellar and we would like to congratulate the winners who are truly deserving and wish them success,” said Rohit Khattar, Chairman of Cinestaan Digital
Aamir also said: “Those who did not make it to the top five should not get discouraged. In fact, scriptwriters should continue writing with more enthusiasm, especially during these times. Every filmmaker needs a good script.”. Perhaps Aamir is right in this. Some of the greatest work has been done by people when they were under the hardest times and there was no hope. It is then when their skills were put to test and outcomes the masterpiece.
