The deadly coronavirus has brewed a storm across the country, resulting in all the Indians locked up inside their houses to avoid its further spreading. Well, at least today, we won’t get to see people on the streets and in their societies because Prime Minister Narendra Modi has imposed Janta Curfew until 9 pm today. As a consequence of the same, a lot of people are bored to death. Well, to kill the same, BJP leader Smriti Irani came up with #TwitterAntakshari to create an entertaining environment amid all the stress.
In her tweet, the actress-turned-politician wrote, “We are a 130 crore family so tag karna mushkil hai ki next kaun gaana uthayega isiliye sing / tweet a song coz ye apni marzi wala #TwitterAntakshari hai.” Soon Smriti was flooded with tweets by all the participants that shared their favourite songs and joined the fun. However, it was filmmaker and producer Karan Johar’s tweet that caught Smriti’s attention and for all the wrong reasons. In his tweet, KJo suggested the song ‘Lag Ja Gale’ and was quickly corrected by Smriti and other netizens.
Karan wrote, “Helloji! Antakshari is my favourite time pass activity! To main Zaroor contribute karna chahoonga...with my favourite song. Lag ja gale ...ke phir ye haseen raat ho na ho...Shayad phir is janam mein mulakat ho na ho......ab aapki bari!!!!” Smriti replied saying how Lag Ja Gale is not the right song during coronavirus, as hugging helps in spreading of the virus. She wrote, “Lag jaa gale is the wrong song during #corona,” followed by face-palm emoticons. LOL!
