In the wake of Coronavirus pandemic that has also afflicted hundreds of Indians, PM Narendra Modi announced national lock down on Tuesday. The whole country is advised to stay at home and practice social distancing for the next 21 days. Several Bollywood actors have been keeping indoors much before the announcement and are also urging their fans to do that same. Shahid Kapoor took to Twitter and Instagram soon after the announcement and expressed his views on the current scenario. Not only did the Kabir Singh actor emphasise on how it was not a time to panic, but to fight together as responsible individuals, he also answered a few questions about his upcoming movies, co-stars and fitness.
On Twitter, when a fan asked him to choose between ice-cream and chocolates, he replied “at this point in time. Warm water. Every 20 minutes.”
