Kunal wrote in the caption that self-isolation, which has been advised by the Government and all medical authorities as a precautionary measure for the rapidly spreading Coronavirus, is not for the personal safety of every individual. His post has been addressed to the people who have been going out despite the warnings and complaining about the virus as he starts with "Why take this collective responsibility with a frown?".

The Big Bang Theory actor wrote, "Self isolating is not for “your” personal safety. It’s the sacrifice it takes for our elders. It’s a small gesture to realize that everything does not revolve around you, in fact, it should bring you joy, that instead of taking selfies for likes, the universe has given you a real-life opportunity to change the world for good, this is your soul’s charity.". He added that instead of seeing the negatives of the apparent house arrest, one should enjoy the experience thinking it to be for a greater good. He said, "Nothing can ever awaken you more profoundly, than doing something bigger than yourself... no more excuses... choose love now :)".
