As India locks down for 21 days, Bollywood stars have shared messages on social media urging citizens to abide by the stay home rule. On Tuesday evening, Prime Minister Narendra Modi asked Indians not to cross the "lakshman rekha" - leave their homes, that is - for three weeks in order to break the chain of transmission of the Coronavirus. Soon after, actors such as Amitabh Bachchan, Anil Kapoor, Anushka Sharma and others shared posts reminding fans that staying home is imperative right now. Amitabh Bachchan, 77, wrote, "Haath hain jodte vinamrata se aaj hum, sune adesh pradhaan ka, sada tum aur hum; Ye bandish jo lage hai, jeevadayi banegi, 21 dinon ka sankalp nishchit Corona dafnayegi (Today we join hands politely and abide by the order. This restriction will become life-giving, 21 days resolution to bury Corona)"

The country is shut till 14th April now. Maybe not completely but a part of this lockdown & curfew is because of the lack of discipline of a certain few who dared to wander and not take the situation seriously... 21 days begin now."
