Actor Jr NTR who is currently recovering at home from COVID - 19, released a statement on Twitter appealing his fans to not conduct any celebration on his birthday. Every year on the actor's birthday, his fans would plan many activities. They would gather in large numbers outside his house and shout slogans of his name. However, this year as the country is still fighting the deadly virus, he urged everyone to stay home and follow the lockdown rules.
Jr NTR has garnered a huge fan base that would go to any lengths to celebrate the superstar's birthday. Hence taking to his Twitter account he wrote, "My dear fans, a big thank you to each and every one of you. I have seen your messages, your videos, and your good wishes. Your prayers have kept me going and I am indebted to you all for this love. I am doing very good and I hope to test negative soon. Every year, the affection shown by you on the occasion of my birthday is something I truly cherish. But in these challenging times, the biggest gift you can give me is to stay home and follow local lockdown rules.”
He also reminded his fans that it isn't the right time to celebrate as we are still fighting the virus "Our country is at war with Covid 19. Our medical community and frontline workers are waging a selfless and tireless war. Many people have lost their loved ones and livelihoods. This is not a time for celebration. This is a time for showing our solidarity with those in need,” he said
NTR also requested his well-wishers to look after themselves, "Support each other and extend a helping hand to those in need. When all this is over and the war on Covid-19 is won, we shall celebrate together. Wear a mask. Stay at home. Jai Hind.”
On the other hand, Jr NTR is currently awaiting the release of SS Rajamouli's RRR, which was slated to release in theatres on October 13. However, as per a source, the makers are planning to announce a new release date on the actor's birthday. Well if this news is true, this would be the best return gift for all his fans, who are desperately waiting to see him on a big screen.
