Actor Salman Khan on Thursday put out a sharp message to the “jokers” who were flouting government-imposed guidelines and venturing out during the ongoing lockdown, putting at risk countless lives to the deadly coronavirus.
In his characteristic ‘Bhai’ style, Salman also appealed to people to not attack doctors, nurses and police personnel who are in the frontline of the battle against COVID-19.

In a 10-minute hard hitting video shared on Instagram he begins with a “Hello, namaste, salaam, sasriyakaal, Kem Cho’ in typical TV reality show ‘Big Boss’ style and goes on to say ‘Zindagi ka Bigg Boss’ has begun with the entire country staying in lockdown mode at home.
He said he had taken a two-day “chhutti” (leave) but “This corona, COVID-19 has given everyone a ‘chutti’.”
Khan said he was staying at his farmhouse in Panvel near Mumbai with his family including his mother, two sisters their children and some other people who had come to visit.
In the video he said that he had sent a friend to get rations for the family from a village around five kilometres away. He recounted that the police stopped him and in the process, his friend took off the mask to speak to the policeman who reprimanded him and asked him to put the mask back on. Salman said that he too chided his friend for doing such a thing.
“Don’t go out, don’t do social gatherings, stay with your family, the government has said if you are doing namaaz, do it at home, do pooja at home…” the actor said, adding that those who had a wish to kill their families should step out.
“Go out get your ration, nobody is stopping you, go nearby but wear your masks, your gloves, go alone,” the actor said underlining that the government has assured that everybody will get ration.
The actor said that whoever does not understand a coronavirus positive patient’s pain is anti-human.
He pointed out that doctors, nurses and policemen are putting in long hours to curb the spread of coronavirus and urged people to respect their work and stay inside.
The actor said policemen would not have taken action and hit people if they followed guidelines and stayed inside. “If you weren’t going out with friends, police wouldn’t have hit you. Do you think police are enjoying it?,” he asked.
“Doctors and nurses are working to save your lives and what do you do? You started pelting stones at them? Those who have been diagnosed with coronavirus, are running away from the hospitals. Where are you running? Towards life or death?,” he questioned in his video.
The ‘Dabangg 2’ star appreciated the efforts by the frontline warriors and said, “the virus that started in China is over in China now, but because of a few jokers, the whole of India will sit at home for a long time.”
The 54-year-old star said that he was aware of many people who wouldn’t come out of their homes earlier but have started doing so since they’ve been asked to not go out.
“You are putting everyone’s lives at risk,” the Bajrangi Bhaijaan actor said.
Salman concluded by urging people to respect the work of the doctors, nurses, police personnel and those who work in banks, take care to ensure that the disease does not spread further and pray that it does not come to a situation where the military has to be called in to stop people from doing the wrong thing.
Filmmaker Vivek Ranjan Agnihotri took to Twitter to shared the video message. “Very well said @BeingSalmanKhan I hope wisdom prevails everywhere,” he tweeted.

Sanjay Gupta SLAMS Ongoing Debates; Says, “Everyone’s Washing Their Hands In It” – Sushant Singh Rajput Case
Sanjay Gupta the producer of films like Kabil, Kaante, and Shootout At Lokhandwala. Now as the producer and filmmaker return to the director’s chair with ‘Mumbai Saga’, he lashes out at the nepotism debate and the hue and cries around the insider-outsider issue that has erupted ever since the suicide of Sushant Singh Rajput. Being from a non-film family himself, the filmmaker calls this entire conversation stupid!
Slamming at these coming with a fresh theory daily, Sanjay Gupta says that individuals will need to comprehend that right before the period of his passing, the late star has been flooded with film offers. It’d be erroneous to drag on the nepotism angle into this unfortunate incident. Further questioning people who are talking about Sushant so much now, the filmmaker asks them where were they when the Kedarnath actor was alive and kicking.
Talking to ETimes about the matter, Sanjay Gupta stated, “I’m also an outsider, so I do not have a family in the company. They’ve only made a lot of a matter of the insider-outsider nonsense that’s complete crap. It has been welcoming and there have hardly been any instances where everyone has ganged up and said let’s teach this guy a lesson or make him sit at home. Nobody does that. Right up to his death, may God bless his soul but he was getting film offers but he was not doing it and that was his choice. It was not that he was shunned. He was a star. Sushant Singh Rajput was not someone, who was climbing the ladder actor, he could sell films on his name. He was a bankable star but what has happened is truly disgusting.”
Further requesting people to leave the late actor’s family in peace, Sanjay Gupta questions the absence of these people when they were really needed by Sushant Singh Rajput. “Leave the boy and his family alone. We don’t need that spectacle on national television every day and you are right, there’s someone new coming out every day and discussing news. Who are these people and how do they matter? Where were they when Sushant was there and now they are coming out and speaking. Everyone’s looking at it from their point of view, their own perspective and how does it benefit their perspective. I don’t think, it’s out of any love for Sushant that they are coming forward and giving their views. Everyone’s washing their hands in it.”
