A lot of celebrities are coming up and doing their part by donating money and creating awareness on Social Media. Virat Kohli too pledged his contribution to the cause. Former cricketer Sachin Tendulkar has donated rupees 50 lakh while BCCI has donated 51 Crore rupees.

This 21-day lockdown is a tough thing for most of us. People are doing all sorts of things to pass their time and people are also doing the work which they earlier depended on their domestic help for.
Many celebrities have been posting videos of their work out routines. Many are posting about their cooking experiments. The other day actress Katrina Kaif posted a video of her in which she can be seen doing the dishes.
Cricketer Shikhar Dhawan too posted a video of him washing clothes while his wife supervised him.
Ace Indian fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah shared a video of himself mopping the floor.
This was the post:
It is good to see this side of our beloved sports persons and actors-actresses as it portrays the fact that they too are normal humans like us and we should take them like that only.
This also creates good content for the people to watch while people sit inside their houses getting bored.
So why don’t you too go and help clean the house or whip something in the kitchen!
In the midst of the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, celebrities have come out on their social media accounts and have urged the people of the country to take all necessary precautions and follow the guidelines given out by the government.
Recently actor Kartik Aryan posted a video of himself giving out his trademark monologue but this time the monologue was related to the fight against Coronavirus.
Check out his video:
Indian skipper Virat Kohli too came out on social media and urged his followers to stay safe and follow the government guidelines.
“Hello, I am Virat Kohli. Today I am speaking to you not as an India player, but as a citizen of the country. What I have seen in the last few days – people moving in groups, not abiding by curfew rules, not following lockdown guidelines – it shows that we are taking the fight very lightly. But this fight is not as easy as it looks or feels,” Kohli said in the video.
“I wish to request everyone to please maintain social distancing and follow it. Also, we should follow the directives given by the government and just for once think how you would feel if due to your negligence someone in your family gets affected by the virus. Please follow the experts as they are working very hard. It will only be successful when we follow our duties rather than going out in groups and breaking rules. This for me is an act against the country’s well-being. So now, I along with all of you wish to see things improve and please follow the directives of the government. Jai Hind!,” Kohli concluded.
This is the video that he posted:
Guys, stay safe and stay inside. Tup tap ghal pe leneka.
21 Din mein Corona gayab! Honourable Prime minister Narendra Modi has declared that the country will observe a 21-day lockdown in order to control the spread of the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19).
What to do?
First of all, STAY INSIDE. PAAGLO KI TARAH BAHAR AAKE DHOL THALIYAN NAI PEETNI SUNDAY KI TARAH. GHAR PE RAHO. CHUP CHAAP GHAR PE RAHO.
You can do all this in the next 21 days:
Watch Hera Pheri, part 1 and 2: Hera Pheri series is the best time pass. Also in these times of crisis, you can revisit the classic comedy film and forget about the situation for some time. (Tup Tap ghal pe leneka)
Watch Deathnote- Anime: The Daethnote anime is one of the best animes ever and it is so well written that it will transport you to the story. It is about a 17-year olf brilliant student who happens to find a notebook which can kill the people whose names are written in it. The series takes you through the journey of Light Yagami and his life as the supreme killer- KIRA. (Kira bhi ghar baith ke criminals maarta tha, copy mein naam likh ke bahar nai jaata tha, be like Kira.)
Read Harry Potter for the 100th time: If you are a Potterhead like me then you will probably revisit the book series and if you haven’t read the series then please do. Now is the right time to do so. Hogwarts will be a perfect escape from the chaos of real life. Go hang out with Harry Ron and Hermione.
Read in General: This time can be consumed by reading in general. All those who complained that they lack time to read now is the time you can actually get to some quality reading. Let us all become bibliophile. (Mast kitabo ki photos kheench ke Instagram pe daalo meri tarah)
Become best friends with your parents: This is the time when you can actually be friends with your parents. No office, no college, no school and a lot of family drama. (Tujhey sab hai pata haina maaaaaa).
These are not the only friends you are supposed to know:
Yes, I know we all are stuck inside our houses and it feels like an unbearable episode of Big Boss. Now, why don’t you sit back and relax? I know it is easier said than done. I have decided that I will be recommending some good old films that you can cherish with your entire family and get through this personal episode of Big Boss.
The 2004 movie by Priyadarshan is my all-time favourite. Starring Kareena Kapoor, Akshay Khanna, Amrish Puri, Arshad Warsi, Suniel Shetty, Paresh Rawal, Shakti Kapoor, Jackie Shroff and Arbaz Khan, Hulchul is a classic example of Priyadarshan’s comedic intelligence.
Angar Chand (Amrish Puri) has four sons and has decided that he won’t ever get them married. The youngest son, Jai (Akshay Khanna) falls in love with Anjali (Kareena Kapoor) but unfortunately, these two belong to two arch-rival families. The situation sounds like a Romeo-Juliet one but is super funny.
the two try to convince their respective families for the marriage but initially fail. The situation takes many comedic turns when Jai’s best friend Lucky (Arshad Warsi) finds out a secret about Kishan, Jai’s elder brother played by Paresh Rawal. The movie is a two and a half hours full of madness concluded with the classic Priyadarshan’s climax full of chaos.
The climax scene is amazingly written and very well directed. It bears the essence of chaos which is usually seen in most of the Priyadarshan films. Paresh Rawal and Arshad Warsi steal the show with their perfect timings and delivery. All the actors have given stellar performances and nowhere the movie bores you.
Most of you must have seen the movie many times and would not think twice before rewatching it. But if you haven’t seen the film, now is the right time to watch it.
The movie will be a great thing to watch in these times of despair.
