Big B shares old picture dressed as Superman; wishes to wipe away Coronavirus
Megastar Amitabh Bachchan, much like the rest of the world’s population, is feeling helpless in the face of the coronavirus pandemic. As infected persons’ count gallops beyond 200 mark, the actor wishes he could turn into a superhero and bring an end to it.
On Friday, Bachchan shared a throwback picture of himself from one of his son Abhishek’s birthday parties. The photo shows him dressed like Superman--cape and all-- and shooting the party festivities with a large camera. In his tweet he wrote, “A fancy dress birthday party for Abhishek in his very early years .. dress theme ‘SUPERMAN’ .. Wish I could actually turn into Superman and bring an end to this horrible pandemic forever.”
On Thursday, Amitabh supported Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s initiative of janta curfew, as per which, the citizens are requested to stay indoors for 14 hours on Sunday. “I support #JanataCurfew .. 22 March .. 7 am to 9 pm .. I applaud all fellow countrymen who work tirelessly to keep the essential services operational in such extenuating circumstances ..BE ONE, BE SAFE, BE IN PRECAUTION,” he wrote in a tweet.
Coronavirus has so far infected 206 people in India and killed four. Around the world, more than 2,34,000 people have been infected and more than 9000 killed.
