It begins with Shweta hitting someone, who is then revealed t be Karan Veer Mehra. He in turn attacks Rishina Kandhari with a musical instrument, who throws a TV remote at Priyanka Kalantri which sees her hitting Vikaas Kalantri with a broom. He, in turn, hits Sharad Malhotra with a cricket bat. Sharad retaliates by throwing an apple that hits Debina Bonnerjee. She gets ready to slap Romanch Mehtha, who first offers her a hand sanitiser before being slapped by her. He in turn hits Donal Bisht, who responds with a kick that catches Krip Kapur Suri. Krip gets hit on the eye but is unable to face his attacker. He picks his guitar to play a tune and end the fight.

A fan said, “Funny but y mar peet, do something constructive.” Another wrote, “u are accidentally promoting domestic violence.” One more commented, “What the hell is this? Rhetorical for physical abuse - though intended for the virus....didn’t like it.”
Celebs such as filmmaker Karan Johar, Anushka Sharma, Farhan Akhtar among others have expressed concern over the increase in domestic violence cases in the country during nationwide lockdown.

To all the men we say, now is the time to standup against this violence. To all the women we say, now is the time to stand up and break the silence. If you’re a witness to domestic violence in your home, please report. If you’re a witness to domestic violence in your neighbourhood, please report. If you’re a survivor of domestic violence, please report it. Let’s put a lockdown on domestic violence,” the stars said in the video.
