In a video shared by Saathiya actor Vivek Oberoi, his father veteran Bollywood actor Suresh Oberoi has strongly urged the citizens of India to follow the directives given by the government and stay indoors and practice social distancing. The 73-year-old actor also lists the number of people who have been actively helping everyone by putting themselves at risk.
He says, "This is a fight and we will only be able to win this if we support each other and the government." while Vivek has reinforced the same idea through his caption which says, "It’s not just the responsibility of the govt but a shared responsibility of each one of us!".
