As the clock struck 5 Sunday afternoon, March 22, 2020, citizens of India took to their balconies, terraces, windows and gates to commemorate the efforts of law enforcement authorities and medical officers who have been working relentlessly to contain the spread of the deadly Coronavirus in the country. Amid the 'Janta Curfew', Bollywood celebrities also raised their voices through their social media accounts to support the cause by gestures such as clapping hands or blowing the conch or ringing bells.
Bollywood singer Sona Mohapatra shared a video of her contribution to this drill implemented by Prime minister Narendra Modi through his address on Thursday. She called the 'Janta Curfew' a practice drill for the tough days ahead. Kaho Naa Pyaar Hai actor Ameesha Patel also shared a video where she can be seen clapping for the nation as she stood at the balcony of her house.
Today is just a practice drill for tough days ahead. We will overcome together & only unity, consideration for others, kindness & common sense can help us.— SONA (@sonamohapatra) March 22, 2020
