After Taapsee Pannu and Rishi Kapoor, Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma have extended their support to PM Narendra Modi’s decision for a nationwide lockdown for 21 days starting 25 March to fight the coronavirus crisis. Taking to Twitter, the husband-wife duo shared a video, urging fans to stay at home and requesting them to follow the guidelines issued by the government.
These are testing times and we need to wake up to the seriousness of this situation. Please let us all follow what's been told to us and stand united please. It's a plea to everyone pic.twitter.com/75dDlzT6tX— Virat Kohli (@imVkohli) March 25, 2020
“For the next 21 days, you will be required to exercise caution, take precautions and behave responsibly to tackle the coronavirus crisis. Stay at home to prevent you and your family from contracting the infection. It’s imperative that you don’t break the curfew. Making noise and gathering in large groups will not drive the virus away. Don’t rely on misinformation and superstitions”, Virat and Anushka told their fans.
Earlier, Taapsee Pannu, Rishi Kapoor, Akshay Kumar and a host of other celebrities welcomed the PM’s decision, stressing that this is necessary in these trying times.
At the risk of sounding repetitive, sharing my thoughts...there is a lockdown for a reason. Please don’t be selfish and venture out, you’re putting others lives at risk #StayAtHomeSaveLives. @mybmc pic.twitter.com/G0Nms9hYoP— Akshay Kumar (@akshaykumar) March 24, 2020

Not a lot for us in return of our lives.

And hopefully by the end of THIS lockdown we surely will have a reason n time to celebrate. Until then let’s get through one day at a time.
One for all, all for one. Let us do what we have to do. We have no option. We will all keep one another busy and entertained for the coming time. No worries. No panic. Sala isko bhi dekh lenge. PM ji don’t worry we are with you! Jai Hind.— Rishi Kapoor (@chintskap) March 24, 2020
