As India and Pakistan are close to the 70th year since their partition, 12 prolific filmmakers from both sides of the border came together to make an empowering video, a video to showcase their zeal for unity.

The directors can be seen reciting a stunning Kausir Munir poem that's simple yet effective: the message conveyed is that both sides need to come together for reform, to make a difference.

The initiative has been backed by Zee Zindagi – a channel dedicated to airing Pakistani plays across India and beyond.

Directors who are representing Pakistan include Mehreen Jabbar, Sabiha Sumar, Shahbaz Sumar, Siraj ul Haque, Khalid Ahmed and Farjad Nabi/Meenu Gaur. From India, the filmmakers participating are Aparna Sen, Ketan Mehta, Nikhil Advani, Tigmanshu Dhulia, Bejoy Nambiar, and Tanuja Chandra.

We're all for this heartwarming cross-border venture.
