Meanwhile, Gajraj Rao, Neena Gupta's  co-star of films such as Badhaai Ho and Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan also posted a picture from the vaccination drive and an excerpt from his post read, "In the three hours queuing up for my dose, I was still contemplating whether I should take it or not. Much overthinking later, when the syringe finally went in, it painlessly relieved me of my anxiety in a matter of seconds. Getting the vaccine today was possible all thanks to a rigid and adamant lifelong companion of mine - diabetes. I would like to thank all our medical professionals and the staff."
