Mahesh Babu has asked his fans and the public to stay indoors and avoid social life for some time to prevent the spread of Coronavirus.
He said, “Social distancing is the need of the hour! It’s a tough call but we need to make it. This is time to sacrifice our social life and prioritize public safety. Stay indoors as much as you can and make the most of this phase with your family and loved ones. This will keep the virus from spreading and save many lives.”
The top star added: “Ensure you wash your hands frequently and keep your environment clean. Use hand sanitizers as much as possible, use masks only if you think you are sick… Let’s continue to follow all the necessary steps until this passes. We are in it together and we will see this through… Let’s beat #COVID19 together… #StaySafe.”
Rana Daggubati has asked people to read more during COVID-19 lockdown. “Given the current scenario, I think it’s best to be home clean and safe. But the problem is that we are a generation that’s used to being engaged in so many things. So at ACK (Amar Chitra Katha), we decided to let out our online subscriptions open this month so children and adults have access to all of the amazing ACK and Tinkle titles,” he said.
He added: “They can choose to read right through. They are the stories of our land… And when reading was popular culture this is where most of us learnt about our country, our Gods, kings and culture that made us in the most fun illustrations and stories. And I think it’s important for the generation to know our past and build a future.”
On Coronavirus, he said, “We’re probably seeing something like this for the first time. So it’s important to be extremely cautious and hygienic at all times and enjoy the time and peace by yourself. And not panic.”
