Shilpa Shetty shared a video by a brand making topical ointment and wrote a long note. She said: "Salute! #NationalDoctorsDay What a heartwarming film Vicks has brought to life on the eve of National Doctor's Day. Being a mother myself, I can't imagine the pain Mrs. Bhosale and many such families would be currently going through. The @vicks_india’s #TouchOfCare film is a reminder of many such selfless acts of care portrayed by our frontline workers. After watching Dr. Dnyaneshwar Bhosale's story, I'm speechless and want to extend my heartfelt gratitude & care towards all doctors and healthcare workers of our country. Salute."

Actor Ayushmann Khurrana, in a statement, said: “Doctors and the entire medical fraternity have been the real superheroes in today’s times. I salute them for constantly putting themselves at risk to save the nation but we too have the power to save them. They also have families, they also have near and dear ones worrying for them. It is our duty to also keep them safe.”
“If we respect and care for the doctors and the entire medical fraternity, who have been battling this virus since last year, we should be judicious in how we lead our lives and not be irresponsible to create more pressure on them. COVID-19 has not gone away from our country. I urge everyone to please be vigilant and stay safe by maintaining social distancing, by wearing masks and sanitizing well, and yes, please get vaccinated at the earliest. It can save lives and help our country to rest," he added.
