There is no denying the fact that the coronavirus outbreak is the biggest problem faced by not only India but the whole world and its fatal effect can be understood by the fact that it has brought majority of nations to a standstill. The World Health Organization has declared COVID-19 as a pandemic which has already taken lives of more than 1 lakh people while over 17.7 lakh persons have been found infected with it worldwide. If we talk about the stats in India, more than 270 people have succumbed to this virus that has infected around 8,300 people in the nation.
Considering the grim situation caused by coronavirus, the Indian government announced the complete lockdown of 21 days in the country and taking into account the essential fact that the condition is still not very much satisfactory, lockdown has been extended further; however, the Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi will make an announcement in this regard when he will address the nation.
Various celebrities from the film industry and sports world as well as different government departments are taking resort to social media for urging the Indians to stay at home and maintain social distancing. While some use the tone of aggression, suggestion or request, there are many who opt for adding a punch of humour to spread awareness about COVID-19.
Needless to say, Indian police is doing a brilliant job amid lockdown and coronavirus scare and they indeed deserve a big round of applause for their work. Apart from serving the country tirelessly with their duty, they are also leaving no stone unturned in creating awareness through social networking platforms. Earlier we stumbled upon Mumbai Police’s tweet in which they used MS Dhoni’s iconic shot in World Cup 2011 and now they have resorted to Bollywood for spreading awareness.
Mumbai Police has used a scene from Shah Rukh Khan & Sushmita Sen starrer “Main Hoon Na” in which a college professor (role played by Satish Shah) spits badly on Ram Prasad Sharma (character portrayed by SRK) and the latter does a mind-blowing stunt to save himself from the spit attack.
Mumbai Police talks about the importance of mask as they have written, “@iamsrk wouldn’t need to do such stunts any longer – Mask Hai Na!”

Earlier Nagpur Police also made some witty yet amusing tweets amid the COVID-19 outbreak. In one of the tweets, they used a scene of SRK and Deepika’s “Chennai Express” and urged people to maintain social distancing while in another, they asked people not to step outside their house unnecessarily by using a still from Shahid Kapoor starrer “Kabir Singh”. Moreover, few days ago when Bollywood star Ajay Devgn appreciated the efforts of Mumbai Police, the latter responded to the actor in a filmy style with the inclusion of his movies’ names in the tweet.
