Sharing a video on Twitter on Tuesday, Kher was heard saying, “Stop sending me messages of doom, concern, gossip about what is happening about this virus. We are a well informed society and bad news travels very fast.”  

“Keep your bad news to yourself, not that I know that you are doing it out of concern. But I’ll be very happy if you show your concern by sending a message of hope, compassion, what is your contribution in today’s time and are you making people aware of what is to be done?” he added. 

Anupam Kher urged them to not send messages like those that read, ‘Is it worth living?’ “If your fingers are desperate to send a message to me, send me a message that is beautiful, like things are going to be fine and we need to be careful. And I’m washing my hands, are you washing your hands? Do me a favour and do a favour to everyone, stop spreading misinformation, stop spreading panic, if you want to spread something, spread brotherhood, sisterhood, love and hope.”

Kher had shared a video before as well, where he stated that coronavirus was a ‘reality of our times’ and we needed to be careful and cautious about it.
