Currently, most actors and celebrities have been following the COVID-19 lockdown and even turned creative with how they spend their time during the lockdown period. While some actors have released their music videos, others have come up with innovative ideas like creating a mask out of an old, worn-out T-shirt, and so on. While most celebrities are posting positive messages and videos on social media platforms, people and fans have been inspired by the same. Several celebs have also been urging people to stay at home safely and follow the lockdown guidelines for their own safety as well as that of others.
