After Janta Curfew, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on April 3, had appealed to citizens to once again stand united and show solidarity in the fight against the Coronavirus pandemic, by lighting a candle, flashlight at 9pm sharp for 9 minutes on April 5. Several Bollywood celebrities such as Deepika Padukone- Ranveer Singh, Anushka Sharma, Alia Bhatt, and others participated in it. The 9baje9minute initiative was popular as can be seen from the flooding of pictures and videos on social media by various celebrities.
Now, Anurag Kashyap has expressed his view about the same, and said that people could keep participating in these initiatives to light candles, clang plates, but none of it will help, and that the end is certain. He took to his Twitter handle and wrote, “ देश को Corona से बचाने के लिए सबसे ज़रूरी है ,कि हमारे डॉक्टर और नर्सेज़ और सभी स्वास्थ्य कर्मचारी सेहतमंद और सुरक्षित रहें ।उन्हें कुछ हो गया ना तो फिर थाली बजाओ या दिया जलाओ, या जो भी अगला programme करो ।अंत निश्चित है । #DocsNeedGear #TestKaroNa.”
Anurag Kashyap has always been vocal about airing his views and even though he gets a lot of resistance on Twitter, he stays the course on talking his mind. The cases of Coronavirus have been on the rise even after 2 weeks of lockdown and a lot of the focus is now on testing and providing facilities to the medical staff of the country.

Meanwhile, Anurag Kashyap was earlier slammed by Kangana Ranaut’s sister Rangoli Chandel for his tweet mocking the light a candle initiative. He had tweeted, “I have a question. Where can I get a candle and lamp? At a drugstore or at a general store or at the vegetable shop? Does this also come in the list of important essential stuff? If not available, can I burn this world? I have a match stick.”
