  • Caliphate, Shefali Shah, Coronavirus

    Caliphate: Enjoying binge-watching, Shah who watches all kinds of content, recommends Netflix's Swedish thriller Caliphate. She says, "If you have an appetite for world cinema, then you must watch Goran Kapetanovi's Caliphate."

  • Chernobyl, Shefali Shah, Coronavirus

    Chernobyl: She has another suggestion in Hotstar's Chernobyl. "It's an outstanding series. While I agree it could be disturbing and probably not the right time to see it, it's a must-watch because it stays with you. It thrills me as an artiste [to see] these unimaginable situations that people write about laced with a survival story", she says.

  • A Beautiful Day in the Neighbourhood, Shefali Shah, Coronavirus

    A Beautiful Day in the Neighbourhood: Considering the grim situation, Shah moves away from dark content to some light-hearted suggestions. "A Beautiful Day in the Neighbourhood is a stunning, classic film. It's a great watch in these terrible times because it's positive and warm. Tom Hanks has so much love and compassion, and there could be no one better to play the character of Fred Rogers", says the Dil Dhadakne Do actress.

  • Life is Beautiful, Shefali Shah, Coronavirus

    Life Is Beautiful: Shefali also suggests watching Life Is Beautiful. The 1997-Italian comedy drama tells the story of a Jewish Italian bookshop owner, who employs his fertile imagination to shield his son from the horrors of internment in a Nazi concentration camp.
