Madhur Bhandarkar's new film India Lockdown will stream exclusively on ZEE5, the makers announced on Tuesday. 

Inspired by true events, India Lockdown depicts four parallel stories and the repercussions of the Covid-19 pandemic on the people of India. The film stars Prateik Babbar, Shweta Basu Prasad, Sai Tamhankar, Aahana Kumra, Zarin Shihab, Ayeesha Aiman and Sativik Bhatia. It is written by Amit Joshi and Aradhana Sah. 

This is Madhur's second online release this year after Babli Bouncer which streamed on Disney+ Hotstar.

The four parallel stories explored in India Lockdown are that of a father-daughter duo who are stuck in different cities during a crucial high point in the daughter’s life; a sex worker and the hardships she goes through in her personal and professional life due to the lockdown; a migrant worker who barely manages to provide bread and butter for his family; and an airhostess who for the first time has some downtime compelling her to introspect.

"Lockdown was a tough phase for many as people struggled to make ends meet and that gave seed to a thought to make a film on people affected by the lockdown," Madhur shared. "India Lockdown is a product of my observations, and it depicts raw stories of real people across various walks of life. This is a film that will resonate with many in some or the other way and I am glad that it will release on ZEE5 and reach out to so many people across the world."

Manish Kalra, Chief Business Officer, ZEE5 India said, “We are delighted to announce our upcoming original film India Lockdown. It is an exciting collaboration with Madhur Bhandakar who knows and understands the pulse of the viewers and has a talent to tell stories inspired by true events. This film narrates stories of ordinary people from across India and what they went through in the lockdown imposed due to the corona pandemic."
