Former Miss World Manushi Chhillar, who is gearing up to make her Bollywood debut with Yash Raj Films’ historical drama Prithviraj opposite superstar Akshay Kumar, has been roped in to spread the message of self-isolation and social-distancing among the people of her home-state Haryana.

Manohar Lal Khattar, the honourable Chief Minister of Haryana, called upon Manushi Chhillar to take up the cause. Chhillar will be posting a series on videos on her social media accounts, requesting the people of Haryana to stay at home in order to fight against the novel Coronavirus, which has infected more than 700 people in India alone, with 17 confirmed deaths.

Manushi says, “The whole of India is in a state of crisis and it is my duty as a citizen of this country to raise as much awareness as possible among my fellow countrymen about the coronavirus pandemic. My roots are in Haryana and I’m hugely responsible to raise my voice on things that affect my brothers and sisters of the state. I hope this video reaches out to everyone and helps raise more awareness about COVID-19. There is an urgent and immediate need to self-isolate and socially distance ourselves to save lives and we should all respect the all India lockdown that is in place to curb the virus.”

In her video, she goes on to add, “We all know that Coronavirus has pushed us to a state of immense crisis. And together we will need to fight it, we will need to stop it. We will need to unite and act responsibly. I’m staying at home. I’m social distancing to protect myself and everyone I love and care for. You should also stay at home and self-isolate.”

She adds in the video, “India is on lockdown and you will need to respect that. It is the only way to stop the spread of coronavirus and save lives. You and only you have the power to save the nation. Be responsible. Be a citizen that India is counting on.”
