- Story Text: Anbu Rajasekar - a Tamil filmmaker in India's southern Chennai city has established a world record for making the world's shortest movie with a duration of just five seconds.
The film "Be Pretty" showcases a man entering a house and a dog starts barking, reminding him to wear a mask.
Rajasekar made the film on his phone during the lockdown period and after learning about the previous record of a seven seconds movie, he compressed the duration and edited it without disturbing its concept.
The previous record was held by an American movie, "Soldier Boy" with a duration of seven seconds.
India is the second-worst affected country in the world by coronavirus, however, poor mask discipline is seen across the country.
