Popular Telugu actors Chiranjeevi, Mahesh Babu and Nagarjuna have urged their fans to stay home as India has gone into 21-day lockdown to prevent the spread of coronavirus which has crippled the world with thousands of deaths.

On Tuesday evening, in his address to the nation, PM Modi said, “Lockdown of 21 days is a long time, but this is important for you and your family’s safety. I believe that every Indian will not only successfully tackle this challenge but also emerge victorious in this time of crisis.”

 

India is observing 21-day lockdown from Wednesday. Telugu stars Chiranjeevi, Mahesh Babu and Nagarjuna took to Twitter to urge their fans to not step out of their houses during this period. Chiranjeevi, who made his social media debut on Wednesday, said: “21-day lockdown is an inevitable measure taken by government of India for the well being of each one of us Indians. It is the need of the hour. Let us stand with our beloved PM Shri Narendra Modi to secure ourselves, our families and our country.”

 

Wishing everyone a Happy Ugadi, Mahesh Babu said that everybody should have a home-bound Ugadi. “During these unprecedented times, I request all of you to follow the 6 golden rules to fight against coronavirus. It’s important to follow the instructions issued by our state and central governments,” Mahesh tweeted.

 

Nagarjuna tweeted: “Wishing all my friends a very happy Ugadi. 21-day lockdown is going to test us but we have no choice. Let’s unite and give strength to our PM Narendra Modi ji and we can beat this coronavirus pandemic. Stay home, stay safe.”
