Shabana recently tweeted a video, urging fans to support the elderly amid the lockdown in wake of Covid-19 pandemic. In her video, Shabana said, “During this lockdown, I have noticed that the young have become more caring and responsible towards their elders. Some are picking up groceries from them and some are helping them cope with technology. It’s almost as if the roles have reversed, which is good because COVID-19 affects the seniors the most. So, look around you for elders because they are vulnerable, message them, and check on them regularly, and ask what kind of help they need, and share with us how you help them. Be there for them, without being around them. Pledge your support to the elderly, Is baar badon ke liye Jaago re.”
