Meanwhile, the second film takes a humorous approach to highlight the psyche of a solo gamer.

While the first film attempts to desensitize the stereotypes existing in the gaming community, the second one explores the duality in the lives of gamers when they unleash their true self in BGMI versus their behavior in a formal setting.”
Mitali Sharma, VP, Content Development, Supari Studios added, “Gaming gives people an opportunity to be true to themselves. Moreover, it offers a sense of belonging by allowing them to bond with friends or family. Keeping this in mind, the films we developed for KRAFTON, Inc., aimed to present BGMI as a platform having no qualms about who the player is—anyone can sign up, start playing and genuinely be themselves.”
