As we all battle this virus. I think it is time we realise that the human race has been extremely selfish. It’s time we introspect. We share this planet with many other species. Development is important but not at the cost of killing other species. We will overcome this but we must realise that messing with Mother Nature comes at a cost. Art work- @jstnptrs
Celebrities like Parineeti Chopra, Sara Ali Khan, Sonam Kapoor Ahuja, Anil Kapoor, Abhishek Bachchan and others were spotted donning face masks to preach their fans about safety.
In tough times like these, we need to stay together strong and united. Thanks to all our tinsel town celebs, this makes a little easier on their fans and followers!
