The slogan, "O Corona Kal Aana", is a parody of the slogan used in the film, Stree. In Stree, the citizens of a small town would write, "O Stree Kal Aana", to protect themselves from the local spirit that haunted the area. The maker of these posters is now trying to protect his city, Varanasi, by reminding its citizens about the coronavirus pandemic. The posters are meant to persuade people to take precautions against the disease.
