The film starts with the scene of Big B seeking his sunglasses and then each of the above actors supporting him to find them. Eventually, PeeCee finds out and gives him a question of the reason he needed them. After that, he replies:

"I needed these sunglasses because I do not need them. I am not going to go out of the house for a few days. If it lies around, it will get lost. If it gets lost, you all will have to search for it. Now, why should I trouble you all?"

At the end of the short film Family, the legendary megastar sends a meaningful message and reminds onlookers to stay in to prevent the coronavirus outbreak. He said:

"We all made this film together but none of us stepped out of our respective houses. Every artist shot their own section in their own house. No one stepped out of his or her house. You, too, please stay indoors. That is the only way to keep yourself safe from this dangerous coronavirus. Stay home, stay safe."

Amitabh went on clarifying why he and the other actors made the short film Family. He explained that the whole Indian cinema is one and all of the actors belong to a family. But what was focused more is the daily wage workers who are dealing with a harsh time of lockdown. He stated that all the actors will cooperate with sponsors to raise a fund for the workers.

Once again, he transferred his positivity through a message that the darkness will be over soon and ended with a traditional way: "Namaste".
