Nagpur Police Used Shah Rukh & Deepika’s Chennai Express Meme To Spread Awareness About COVID-19
The Indian government and various departments are using each and every medium to spread awareness about the coronavirus outbreak and telling people about the precautions that they should take in order to keep themselves safe. While remaining indoors is the best way to break the chain of coronavirus transmission, social distancing comes into play when people have to go out for very important purposes.
Coronavirus is contagious in nature and it is advised that people should maintain a distance of 1 meter from each other whenever they are in public places. The Nagpur police has also used its official Twitter handle for imparting knowledge about the importance of social distancing but in Bollywood style.
The Nagpur Police has used a scene from the Shah Rukh Khan and Deepika Padukone starrer “Chennai Express” in which both the actors are seen sitting on the opposite sides of a bench. A two way arrow is drawn between them with social distancing written on it and the caption is also inspired from a dialogue of the movie, “Don’t underestimate the power of a common man”.
Nagpur Police changes the dialogue to, “Don’t underestimate the power of Social Distancing! #NagpurPolice”
Check out the tweet:

Coronavirus pandemic has left us in a state of shock as we see the developed countries battling to save the lives of their citizens despite the fact that they have advanced and world-class medical facilities. We should follow the advice of the medical authorities to the perfection and should never forget that prevention is always better than cure.
Stay at home, wash your hands regularly, go out of house if very necessary and practice social distancing. Stay safe, stay healthy!
