The celebrities of the film industry came out, as requested by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, on their balconies to honour the unsung heroes in the battle against COVID-19. Amitabh Bachchan, Deepika Padukone, Anil Kapoor and many other stars, who followed the Janta Curfew and remained at home, were among those who gave a shoutout to the essential services workers.
Amitabh Bachchan and his family came out on the terrace of his bungalow. Abhishek Bachchan, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Aaradhya, Navya Naveli and Shweta, were clicked.
Ranveer Singh clicked the moment when Deepika Padukone was delightedly clapping, though he himself was not seen in the picture. He captioned it, “Thank you to our heroes.”
Anil Kapoor too was snapped and so was his niece Anshula Kapoor.
Bobby Deol and his wife Tanya Deol too were spotted.
ये धन्यवाद का नाद है, लेकिन साथ ही एक लंबी लड़ाई में विजय की शुरुआत का भी नाद है। आइए, इसी संकल्प के साथ, इसी संयम के साथ एक लंबी लड़ाई के लिए अपने आप को बंधनों (Social Distancing) में बांध लें। #JantaCurfew— Narendra Modi (@narendramodi) March 22, 2020
