In an attempt to raise awareness about how to return to work during the coronavirus crisis, actor Akshay Kumar on Thursday released his new short film based on 'self-reliant' or 'atmanirbhar' India.

Akshay took to Twitter to post the short video in which he is seen playing a man living in rural India. As the short film begins the Pad Man actor is seen wearing a face mask and walking to work when an elderly man in the village intervenes and asks him to stay inside as the government may have lifted travel restrictions but the virus is still spreading.

Kumar is then seen talking about how frontline workers are fighting COVID and similarly, others too should return to work becoming self-reliant or atmanirbhar.

The video ends with the elderly man getting convinced and deciding to return to work.
