A gallery of popular stars from the Indian entertainment industry—including Manoj Bajpayee, Pankaj Tripathi, Vidya Balan, Jaideep Ahlawat and Rasika Dugal, among a host of others—have come together to encourage fellow citizens to get their COVID-19 vaccination shots.
The messages, delivered in Hindi, Tamil, Kannada and Malayalam, is a positive step to put in place a sustained public service campaign to get a critical mass of India’s enormous population on board with getting vaccinated. Especially with the country being massively hit by the second wave of COVID-19 and anticipating a dreaded third wave, the importance of getting oneself inoculated cannot be stressed enough.
At this critical juncture, it is inspiring to see popular actors from Bollywood and Amazon Orginals, coming together on camera to push India’s masses towards vaccination. “To keep your family safe and protect them is no less than a mission. Register yourself at cowin.gov.in for vaccination. Vaccine ki vaar, covid ka haar!” says Manoj Bajpayee, whose recent release of The Family Man Season 2 on Prime Video has received huge popular acclaim.
Vidya Balan, whose environmental thriller, Sherni, has also been recently released on Prime Video, calls on people to get inoculated without any delay. “Covid will not stand in the face of inoculation. So go and get whatever vaccine is available right now, don’t delay it any further,” she urges.
“As soon as you get the opportunity, get yourself vaccinated,” appeals Pankaj Tripathi. His co-star, Rasika Dugal, from the wildly popular Mirzapur , adds, “Please go ahead and take your shot. Don’t take any chances, take the vaccine instead!” Apart from these stars, the film also has Bani J, Prithviraj Sukumaran, Arya, Priyamani, Kirti Kulhari, Puneet Rajkumar and Devdarshini - all of who have also urged Indians to get vaccinated.
Register yourself on the Cowin platform, as the stars say, and book your vaccination slot today. Vaccines are an important weapon in our fight against the novel coronavirus. “Vaccines are absolutely safe and very important if we have to fight Covid together. So, let’s defeat COVID by getting vaccinated.” declares Ahlawat. We agree!
Remember, we are in this together and we will co-win this together!
