Bollywood actor Salman Khan appeals people of Odisha in Odia to fight Coronavirus

Amid coronavirus lockdown, superstar Salman Khan has released a video for the people of Odisha. In the video, he is seen urging the people of the state to manage social distancing to keep the highly-infectious coronavirus COVID-19 at a restriction.

The video begins with, Salman greeting people in Odia by saying “Mora Odia bhai o bhauninku Salman ra namaskar” and appealing them to dwell by the state government’s directive to fight against COVID-19. He requests people to follow the government’s guidelines such as using handkerchiefs while sneezing, maintaining a distance of one meter and washing hands frequently with soap.

This video came after Odisha CM Naveen Patnaik and PM of India Narendra Modi requested people to stay indoors. A 21-day lockdown has been announced yesterday which have created some ruckus and some isolation.

Salman’s video message:

“Halhi mein, main aapke paas aaya tha. (Recently I had been to Odisha during Hockey World Cup). Isliye mein aapse ek request karna chah raha hun (On that basis I would like to make a request). Odisha Sarkar ne jo apko instructions die hein, aap usko please manie, (Please obey the instructions Odisha Govt has issued recently). Aap apna khayal rakhoge toh dusron ka khayal rakh paoge. (If you would take care of yourself, you can take care of others). Kuchh hi dionon ki baat hai (It is a thing of only a few days). Let’s follow the rules. Let’s kill the virus. Lots of love from Salman. Karona ku kar na (Say No to Corona),” appeals the actor in the video.
