The Prime Minister of India, Mr. Narendra Modi, on Friday, addressed his countrymen with respect to the alarming spread of the novel COVID-19. The rapid growth of the virus has confined the citizens to their homes and has become a cause of panic and worry. To ease the stressful situation and to show unity as a country, Mr. Modi urged people to step out in their respective balconies and light a candle, diya or flash a torchlight. Extending support to this initiative, Bollywood showed in large numbers.

Shah Rukh Khan's and Gauri Khan's youngest son, AbRam Khan extended his support and gratitude towards authorities working for the safety of the country.
