With this, the filmmaker has wanted to offer a little comfort to those who are going through a difficult time right now due to illness and this social distancing.
"To overcome these difficult times, I send you help with some of my favorite comedies, the ones that I have enjoyed the most over the years. I could easily give you another 100, so sit back and enjoy the movies. Tell me later which ones make you laugh" .
