Stardust details Uzair’s heart-breaking journey during the pandemic when his father was in a state of immobility post-cardiac arrest. Uzair comments: “Stardust is a tussle between two worlds where the character is desperate for an escape to find answers, only to learn life has a flow of its own. It is to be observed, not fought with – the idea that we all come from Stardust and to Stardust we shall return.”
