It is very hard to balance your family and your work. But some people are fortunate. In my case, my parents stayed upstairs, and I stayed downstairs, which is why I could do better.”

Touted as ‘A True Story’, The Vaccine War is based on Dr Balram Bhargava’s book, Going Viral: The Making of Covaxin. In the film, Nana Patekar plays the role of Dr Balram (Former Director General of the Indian Council of Medical Research). Pallavi revealed how they discovered the source material. “During the second wave (of Covid), many people lost lives, and it was a very bleak period. After the second wave, we got to know about the book of Dr Balram Bharagava, and it narrated the entire journey of how they developed the vaccine to fight Coronavirus. When Vivek read it, he came to me and said, ‘This is amazing, you don’t know what these scientists have done’.”
