Can't believe we have let things go so out of hand that human beings don't have air to breathe to anymore. Can't imagine the situation for kids and elders. Please guys, let's all WAKE UP. We cannot be doing this to our planet. #DelhiSmog."
Here's what she posted:
Actress Sonam Kapoor, who is prepping for Veere Di Wedding, asked everyone to use the resources judiciously.
The #SmogInDelhi has become unbearable and it's affecting each one of us. We need to start doing something and fast. Carpool, don't burn garbage and be judicious with your resources. Stay safe Delhi!— Sonam Kapoor (@sonamakapoor) November 8, 2017
Here's what Varun Dhawan had to say:
The deadly smog also resulted in a huge pile-up of vehicles on the Yamuna Expressway in Delhi's outskirts this morning.
Arjun Kapoor, who is Parineeti's co-star in Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar, is also in Delhi. He shared the accident's video and wrote: "What's happening in Delhi is dangerous in more ways than one can imagine...I'm filming here as I type this and I'm fearing things aren't going to really get any better."

Arjun also posted a couple of tweets showing his concern towards the 'suffocating' city. "The video I posted was sent to me and as I stand at look out of the window the fear that engulfs me is that this is reality and it can happen to any of us if we aren't extremely aware and careful. The smog is dangerous long term & short term. Really hope things improve," read one of Arjun's tweets.
I hope & pray the people who are assigned the job of finding long term solutions activately seek & put them into action soon. As citizens we shouldn't feel paranoid about the air we breathe. Our capital is suffering & we are all to blamed but now is the time to right our wrongs.— Arjun Kapoor (@arjunk26) November 8, 2017
I'm here for a few weeks for my shoot in Delhi but it's disconcerting to see the city suffocating. We need to put politics and personal agendas aside stopping the blame game & come together to find a solution otherwise all of us are gonna be affected in more ways than we realise.— Arjun Kapoor (@arjunk26) November 8, 2017
"Are we doing our bit? Are we doing enough for the betterment of our city/country/planet?," asked Haseena Parkar's actress Shraddha Kapoor.
#SmogInDelhi is upsetting but what are we all doing?Are we doing our bit?Are we doing enough for the betterment of our city/country/planet?— Shraddha (@ShraddhaKapoor) November 8, 2017
Actress Dia Mirza, who is always seen supporting Swachh Bharat Mission, tweeted this:
There are over 51000 children living in street situations in #Delhi breathing this poison. The invisible killer has been visible for years but it has done nothing to ensure collective action to combat #AirPollution. #DelhiSmog#BeatPollutionhttps://t.co/nDVZVdIKFs— Dia Mirza (@deespeak) November 8, 2017
Huma Qureshi found it 'scary' and posted the accident's video on Twitter:
Pollution levels in Delhi reached over 10 times the safe limit Tuesday morning, as thick gray clouds of smoke descended over the city. The Indian Medical Association declared a public health emergency, warning people not to go out. Delhi's situation is literally close to a severe crisis. Deputy chief minister Manish Sisodia has announced that Delhi's junior schools will be closed and he has also requested people to avoid morning walks.
Stay safe Delhi!
