About the AIDS Jaago Films

The much talked about, highly awaited short films from award winning Indian directors MIRA NAIR, VISHAL BHARDWAJ, SANTOSH SIVAN, and FARHAN AKHTAR that aim to dismantle myths and raise awareness about HIV/AIDS. Unaddressed, AIDS in India will soon reach epidemic proportions.

Funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the films were the brainchild of Mira Nair. Forget dreary documentaries, India's finest directors put their individualistic stamp on these films, which use top Indian movie stars to maximize exposure of the films.

From South Indian superstar Prabhudeva, Irrfan Khan (Namesake), the iconic Shabana Azmi, to Bollywood stars Shiney Ahuja, Ayesha Takia, Boman Irani, Raima Sen, Siddharth and Sameera Reddy, Indian stars put their heavyweight audience draw behind the project hoping to change minds and save lives.

The result is 4 beautifully shot, rich stories about the human dimension of the disease.
