Tollywood celebrities have been continuously spreading awareness through videos on social media about Coronavirus and asking them to take all precautions. The actors even came out in their balconies to show their support for the medical fraternity. And to join the list is actor Riddi Sen who has been continuously sharing information on social media.
The actor who was live on Facebook on Monday had a conversation to his fans and later penned down a heartfelt post, “1) We hear numbers , 75 million to 500 million people died during the Black Death , which is almost the quarter of population in Eurasia, small Pox killed countless people , Ebola Virus killed thousands in Africa , but these numbers are ‘lives’ , they lived and breathed , these numbers are there around us , in our neighbourhood, in our city , in our country , in our world , so let’s be responsible and sensible to stop these ‘numbers’. 2) We are way too privileged to write things on social media and spread awareness . But let’s not spread ‘boredom’. There are way too many people in our country who are living below the poverty line , they don’t know what they’ll eat tomorrow . The government is trying to help them , but we can help ourselves by ‘not getting bored’ and realising the fact that we are privileged enough to have basic ‘facilities’ , we can quarantine ourselves , but many people who lives in one single room can’t , they don’t have the privilege of Internet or food or hygiene, so ‘boredom’ out of staying home for a while ( when this is the only thing which can save our species ) is not to be encouraged.
“Please request through social media that more ‘kits’ for testing COVID19 should be sent to every state of our country. 4) Dr.Kunal Sarkar wonderfully said that love couldn’t unite us, today we are united by FEAR. So please realise that how religious/gender/cultural/caste division is a failure. Do your bit as a human being now, make each and every known person around you CONSCIOUS so that we don’t have to see an unforgivable situation,” he further wrote.
Meanwhile, the actor has recently wrapped up the shooting of his short film Cold Fire and Indradip Dasgupta’s Bismillah. Subhashree Ganguly will be featured opposite Riddhi Sen in the film.
