Ratnam and Panchapakesan in a joint statement said, We have always loved to brainstorm and come up with unique ideas to raise money for deserving causes. The idea of making short films and raising money through them for this cause was born on one such brainstorming evening. The industry has come together to give it soul and make it count for its people. We are happy that Netflix has come forward to take this confluence of emotion, talent, people and the cause to the world.”
The release date of the anthology will soon be revealed by the makers.
