Watch: Ali Fazal narrates an animation video on the migrant crisis
Created by Ashutosh Pathak, the video encourages viewers to be more socially responsible and bridge class barriers with empathy and kindness
Ali Fazal has voiced and co-produced an animated video on the ongoing migrant crisis. The video, titled Tasveer, highlights how the COVID-19 pandemic has affected migrants and daily-wage workers across the country.
Created by Ashutosh Pathak, the animation journey presents visuals of labourers walking towards their homes in large numbers after being rendered jobless. It encourages viewers to be more socially responsible towards their fellow citizens and bridge class barriers with empathy and kindness.
“The best thing about art is it gets to place mirrors in the face of society and even ask some relevant questions,” Ali said. “I don't know what our better versions look like, but we’ve all seen our worst as humanity this year.”

झाँकिये अपने अंदर । शायद वहीं कहीं छिपा है आने वाले कल का हल । This is what we have seen and felt . And when i say we, i dont mean the woke 1 percent on social media but we, the people of india, down below down under.. unfortuantely this scream will not reach the villager and the worker but it may ring your ears - you, yes you scrolling about your phone and passing judgements on all the happenings of the century.. and that includes me . Us all. We are not bad people. We’ve just been conditioned to march along narratives and trps. I will let the video do the talking. If you like it , do share it. Its not my voice alone. I speak for a lot of us in this.
