Yesterday, on April 3, Prime Minister Narendra Modi shared a video message on his social media handle for the citizens of his nation. In the 15 minutes long video message, the PM has urged citizens of India to switch off lights for nine minutes and light candles or diyas or put out their mobile flash lights in the balcony.
Reacting to the same, several Bollywood celebrities took to social media and expressed themselves.
While filmmaker Hansal Mehta paid homeage to PM by sharing an old song ‘Diya Jalao Jagmag’, Prasoon Joshi extended support by dedicating his poem to the cause.
Homage to this morning and our PM.

Lighting Diyas is a very good gesture, diya creates an ethereal aura which is very calming and effective, to show each other our support let’s do this, I love how @narendramodi ji also focuses on our emotional needs and tries to heal us in every way …. Jai Shri Ram…

On the contrary, we hope that you are safe in your homes and not going outside. The virus is spreading like anything in the country and it is your job to stay inside and stay safe amid this pandemic.
