In his nearly 10-minute-long video, Salman Khan blasted people who are violating lockdown rules. He said that it was strange to see people attacking doctors and nurses.
Salman Khan upset with lockdown violators, calls them ‘jokers’ in new video.
Salman then strictly referred to the government's stern order to follow the lockdown rules, including staying at home, and slammed those who are stepping out amid the lockdown.
Salman Khan is furious. And justifiably so. In a video posted on his Instagram account on Wednesday, Salman blasted people who are not following lockdown rules and endangering lives of other people. The actor tells - warns - his fans and people in general about why people who are strolling on the streets for no reason are stupid.
“Coronavirus has the power to wipe out an entire country… Are you strong enough to conduct the funeral rites of your family members because of your carelessness? We have only two choices right now — respect the rules, the doctors and make sure that it doesn’t spread or watch your loved ones die. Do you want the military rule to be imposed?,” asked Khan in the 9 minute, 36-second video. He also patiently explained how a person’s cavalier attitude towards containing the virus by not staying home can cost dearly.
“I know people who hate going out usually are now beginning to step out because they are being asked by the governments not to… What are you trying to prove?,” asks an exasperated Khan.
This video is an addition to his series of cautionary videos that Khan has been posting ever since India and the world went into a lockdown to flatten the curve of coronavirus. Earlier, Khan had posted a relatively informal video with his nephew about the dangers of stepping out.
Recently Salman Khan initiated the process of transferring funds into the accounts of daily wage workers of the film industry, the Federation of Western Indian Cine Employees (FWICE). The actor had pledged to financially support 25,000 daily wage workers who have been badly hit by the lockdown to contain the coronavirus spread in the country.
According to B.N. Tiwari, FWICE, President, Salman has made an initial payment of Rs 3,000 each to the daily wage workers of the film industry, starting Tuesday.
"We had given him the final list of 23,000 workers so far, who were in dire need of financial help. He is going to transfer money in installments as he doesn''t want people to misuse it. He has transferred about Rs 3,000 to every worker yesterday and he will transfer money again after some time. We are thankful to him for helping our workers," Tiwari said.
