With COVID-19 spreading rapidly with every minute, people are going underground in order to be safe from the deadly virus. No one is taking any chances and the best way to take measures right now is self-isolating themselves. Not only common people, even Bollywood celebs like Saif Ali Khan, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Arjun Kapoor, Katrina Kaif, Deepika Padukone, Alia Bhatt, to name a few, have locked themselves inside their houses. Following the same, today morning, Amitabh Bachchan too followed the suit by taking to his Twitter handle and shared a picture of a hand that has 'self-quarantined' stamped by the Government and the stamp on his hand read, "Proud to protect Mumbaikars. Home Quarantined."
Big B who is mighty concerned with the spread of the deadly pandemic is constantly asking his fans to stay safe via Twitter. While sharing the picture, he captioned it as, “T 3473 - Stamping started on hands with voter ink, in Mumbai .. keep safe, be cautious, remain isolated if detected .." While fans and a lot of us were thinking that the hand is of Big B’s himself, we are here to tell you that it is indeed not but it is just a WhatsApp forward and here’s why we think that. Well, just 2 days back, even controversial queen Rakhi Sawant shared a picture of a hand with government stamped on her Instagram profile and if you look closely, this is the exact same picture which was shared by senior Bachchan. Thus, confirming that it is not Amitabh Bachchan’s hand.
However, as Rakhi shared the picture, she accompanied it with: “Stamping started at Mumbai airport with voters ink. If you see such people on the streets, pl ask them to go back home.” After this post was uploaded, some of her fans and followers called for spreading fake news while some are appreciating the lady was spreading awareness. A lot of twitter users shared their pic from the Mumbai airport itself.
