Family stars Amitabh Bachchan, Priyanka Chopra, Rajinikanth, Diljit Dosanjh, Ranbir Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, Chiranjeevi, Prosenjit Chatterjee, Shiva Rajkumar, Mohanlal, and Mammootty. The story revolves around Big B's missing sunglasses and everyone's effort to find it.
The actors are seen speaking in their native languages and interacting quite well. Portions of the film were shot at the actors' home and they edited to make a film.
In the end, Amitabh Bachchan is seen saying, "We all made this film together, but none of us ever stepped out of our respective homes. Every artiste shot his/her section in their own house. No one stepped out of their homes. You too please stay indoors. That is the only way to keep yourself safe from this dangerous virus. Stay home, stay safe."
He adds, "There's another reason why we made this film. The Indian film industry is one. We all are one family. But there is another large family which supports us and works with us. And that is our workers and daily wage earners, who are facing great difficulty due to the lockdown, We all have come together and teamed up with sponsors and TV channel to raise a fund. And this fund will be distributed to our workers and daily wage earners to provide them with some relief in these tough times."
He ends his address with, "So don't be scared, don't panic. This dark cloud shall pass too. Namaste."
