Bollywood actor Vidya Balan on Tuesday conveyed positive thoughts to her fans amid the depressing gloom and fears that have been caused due to the massive outbreak of Coronavirus globally.

Balan posted a video on her Instagram account where she says: “Thank you Coronavirus.”

She believes that following the Coronavirus outbreak, the “world is changing now”.

A media report quoted Baland saying in the video as: “Thank you for shaking us and showing us we are dependent on something much bigger than we think.”

“Thank you for making us appreciate the luxury we lived in – abundance of products, freedom, health and realizing we were it for granted,” she added.

She also thanked ‘Coronavirus’ for stopping “us to make us see how lost we were in the ‘busy-ness’ not having time for the most basic things”.

“Thank you for allowing us to put aside all our problems we thought were so important and showing us what is actually important,” she continued.

Thanking Coronavirus for “stopping the transport”, the actor said: “The Earth was begging us to look at the pollution for a very long time. We didn’t listen.”

“Thank you for all the fear. It has been a global disease for years but not many of us wanted to face it.”

“But now we have to face it and learn how to embrace it with love and with the support of our community.”

She further thanked ‘Coronavirus’ for “revaluation of our lives”.

“Thank you as we finally understand what it means that we are all connected,” said the actor.

“Thank you for the unity between all of us. We knew the world has to change.”

“Thank you for helping us to undermine everything and giving us a chance to build the world from the very beginning…Be grateful, stay aware. Things will never be the same again,” Balan said.

On Wednesday, the total number of coronavirus cases in India rises to 568, including 43 foreigners.

Globally, the total number of coronavirus cases has reached 4,22,829, with Italy reporting maximum casualties at 6,820.
