In a strict tone, the actor says in the video, “Dimaag hil gaya hai kya kuch logo ka. Kya ho gaya hai? Kisko lockdown ka matlab samajh nahi aa raha? Lockdown ka matlab hai ghar par raho, apne parivar ke sath raho. Sadak par tafri karne na niklo. Ye bahaduri yahaan hi reh jaegi. Khud toh hospital jaoge, apne parivar walo ko bhi leke jaoge.”
He goes on to say, “I do stunts in films, but sach mein keh raha hoon jaan sookhi hui hai. Mazaak nahi hai. Iss bimari ke saamne puri duniya ki halat buri hai. You can be heroes. Just stay at home. It’s a fight against corona. We don’t have an option. I will again come to ask you guys – kya aap khiladi bane ho, ya bewakoof bane ho.
Akshay shared the video with a caption, “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.”
Earlier, Akshay posted a video, stressing on the importance of physical distancing.
He wrote, “For the first time in life, the winner will be the one who will stay put! This is a race, one which will save us…Say yes to #SocialDistancing please.”
Akshay is currently in self-quarantine.
The release date of his upcoming film Sooryavanshi was shifted due to the spread of novel coronavirus.
Though at home, the actor is raising awareness on the issue through social media.
