His message did not go down well with a few. One person, a journalist, wrote, “Wish you did more than just sending hugs! People are dying without oxygen & beds. Hugs are just not enough, Sir.” Replying to her, Abhishek said that he has indeed been helping people in his capacity.
“I am, ma’am. Just because I don’t put it on social media doesn’t mean I’m not doing anything. We all are trying to do our best and whatever we can. The situation is very sad, hence felt spreading a little bit of love and positivity could help,” he wrote. When another person suggested, “Just an idea Abhishek ji, please amplify most critical requests for oxygen and hospitalisation.” The actor replied, “I have been.”
Abhishek’s tweet comes at a time when India has reported more than 3 lakh Covid cases for the fourth consecutive day. The country logged a total of 3,49,691 Covid cases and 2,767 deaths in the last 24 hours, a new single-day high since the pandemic began last year, according to the health ministry’s data released on Sunday.
Meanwhile, Abhishek and wife Aishwarya celebrated their 14th marriage anniversary on April 20. Thanking fans for their wishes, Abhishek recently tweeted: “Thank you very much for all your wishes for Aishwarya and my wedding anniversary, yesterday. Please continue to stay safe, wear your mask and if possible, try not to go out. Thank you again.”
Abhishek was last seen in The Big Bull, based on the life and crimes of stock broker Harshad Mehta. It was directed by Kookie Gulati and also starred Ileana D’Cruz. During the film’s launch as well, Abhishek had fielded many comments and jibes from Twitter users, including comparisons to actor Pratik Gandhi, who starred in last year’s hit series Scam 1992, which was also based on the same subject.
Next, the actor is shooting for his film Dasvi in Agra.
Abhishek will be seen playing the role of Ganga Ram Chaudhary in the movie which is an upcoming project from the makers of ‘Hindi Medium’,’ Angrezi Medium’ and ‘Bala’. The hilarious social comedy also stars Nimrat Kaur and Yami Gautam in a pivotal role. Tushar Jalota is making his directing debut with the film, which is written by Ritesh Shah.
‘Dasvi’ is being bankrolled by Dinesh Vijan, Sandeep Leyzell, and Shobhana Yadav. The movie is being produced under the banner of Maddock Films Production, and Bake my Cake films.
