Amidst the coronavirus outbreak, which has infected hundreds of thousands of people across the world and in turn has led to locking down of various cities, causing families to self-isolate in their homes, everyone is trying to do their bit by urging people to practice social distancing.
With various celebrities urging fans via social media to stay indoors in order to help prevent the spread of COVID-19, recently Aziz Jindani, writer-director of blockbuster animated feature, The Donkey King, shared a video on his official Facebook handle in which Mangu, the protagonist of the film, requests everyone to practice social distancing.
The video clip starts off by Mangu saying that he is well aware of how terrifying this pandemic is, but this is not the time to be scared. He stressed on the fact that we have to fight this fatal contagion and the only way to do so is by distancing and self-isolating. Through this video, the Donkey King urges everyone to keep appropriate distance from others but keep our hearts connected. He further says to avoid going out of the house unnecessarily. The video ends with the message, “Stay home, stay safe.”
The Donkey King hit cinemas in Pakistan on October 13, 2018, and generated decent figures at the local box office. Since then, the political satire has released in six countries - Colombia, Turkey, Spain, South Korea, Ukraine and Russia - besides Pakistan.
