As the name suggests, the film revolves around a virus that transmits a deadly disease in Mumbai.
The director took to Facebook and wrote a note, revealing more details about the film:
In VIRUS, a Student contracts a deadly disease from a visit to central Africa and soon it spreads like wild fire in Mumbai City. A panicky and totally unprepared government warns the people of Mumbai to maintain a distance of atleast 20 feet from each other which becomes impossible in a 2 crore populated city. The death toll soon rises to more than a lakh and the government cuts off Mumbai from the rest of the country in a desperate hope to contain it in Mumbai. The uninfected in a panic try to flee the city,but the administrators give extreme orders to shoot anyone who tries to escape because they want to stop the spread and do not know who’s infected and who’s not. Against this backdrop of a battle between the city’s scared people and its helpless administrators,VIRUS will be a high octane human drama full of fear,tragedy, love, sacrifice,hope and desperation.
Further details about the cast and crew are awaited.
