Abhishek Bachchan asks people not to take Corona lightly, speaking from experience

Actor Abhishek Bachchan, a COVID-19 survivor, has shared a post on his social media accounts urging everyone to wear their masks and not “take the virus lightly.”

Instagram, Abhishek shared a clip of himself saying, “Whenever you go out or you are with somebody, keep your mask on, guys. It’s important.” Yes, he is wearing his own mask in the post. He hashtagged his post #SpeakingFromExperience.

The 44-year-old actor’s public service announcement arrives as coronavirus cases spike in the country. India is currently the second worst-hit country in the virus case count, just behind USA, and just saw it’s highest single day surge in both COVID-19 cases and related deaths.

He had tested positive for corona and was discharged on August 10 after a month. Almost the entire Bachchan family tested positive for COVID-19 in July. Aishwarya was discharged from hospital on July 27; days later, on August 2, Amitabh Bachchan followed. Abhishek, however, ended up staying in hospital for 29 days before finally testing negative and being allowed to go home.

After web series ‘Breathe’,his line-up includes The Big Bull, which will release on an OTT platform, and Bob Biswas, based on the fan favourite hitman in the film Kahaani. Abhishek’s father Amitabh Bachchan returned to work recently and has been sharing pictures from the filming of the new season of game show Kaun Banega Crorepati, which he hosts.
