Bollywood spreads warmth during Coronavirus
The nation is facing the probability of a longer lockdown than 21 days, or even curfews during the Coronovirus aka COVID-19 outbreak. While people are stuck in their houses, they are increasingly watching movies and surfing the net. Most Indians are looking up to their idolized Bollywood personalities, who are cheering them up once again this week.
Quoting Charles Darwin, megastar Amitabh Bachchan wrote the following lines on Twitter: “It’s not the strangest who survive, not the most intelligent, but the one most responsive to change.” Not to forget to mention that Big B is one of the most active desi filmstars on social media and his tweets and posts are revered by fans.
Priyanka Chopra also took to Twitter to share an interesting sketch of a little boy riding a horse. The caption read: “Everyone is a bit scared, said the horse. But we are less scared together.”
Katrina Kaif, who earlier posted videos of her mopping and cleaning her house and even doing the utensils during the social distancing of Coronavirus times, said, “Hope everyone is staying safe… please follow all precautionary safety measures as recommended by the health professionals… exercise and meditation help your body’s immune system… keep your environment clean and happy.”
“Be safe and take care of one another. Together let’s help to stop the spread of this virus. Stay safe everyone,” added the actress.
Actor-singer Sonu Nigam shared an exclusive message on Coronavirus, wherein he shared his plight about not being able to return to India amid the total lockdown.
Ace makeup and prosthetic designer Preetisheel Singh asked everyone to show restraint and compassion in these tough times. “The world is going through troubled times right now and it seems like we cannot do anything about it, but remember, it’s the little things that will get us all out of this big difficulty,” she wrote on the Instagram account of her company, Da Makeup Lab.
“It’s the care, the love, the strict adherence to social distancing, and a sense that together we can overcome it. That is what will ultimately bail us out. So keep calm and fight on,” added Preetisheel.
Leading filmmaker Karan Johar tweeted: “You know what to do! You know how critical it is! You know about self isolating, washing hands, social distancing, you know it all!”
“Then do yourself a favour and just don’t read any more corona updates for a few days! Just happy and elevating news! Do this for yourself,” Karan added.
Sharing a pic of hers with papa Mahesh Bhatt, Alia wrote on her FB page: “Stay home and go through old pictures when you’re missing your daddy. #throwbackthursday #stayhomestaysafe”
