Coronavirus has caused outrage among all the citizens around the world. The pandemic has affected all the cities across the world. Recently, Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced that due to the increase in the number of cases of Coronavirus in India there will be a complete lockdown for the next 21 days. He has urged citizens to stay indoors and not to panic and observe social distancing. Bollywood celebrities who are also at home have been requesting fans to stay indoors and try and discover some new talent and make the best use of this time at home. 

The majority of the celebrities have been posting workout videos and motivating their fans to workout at home since all the gyms have been closed due to the virus. Amidst all this, filmmaker and choreographer Farah Khan has something else to say. Introducing herself the filmmaker said, "Since everyone is making videos I also thought of making one. In the interest of public health and safety, my video saying that please, it's a humble request for all the celebrities and stars to please stop making you're working out videos and bombarding us with it. I can understand that you all are privileged and don't have any other worries in this global pandemic except looking after your figures. But most of us have bigger concerns during this crisis. So please have some pity on us and stop posting the workout videos." She further said that she will unfollow those who continue to send the workout videos and has requested them to not feel bad if she does so.

Arjun Kapoor, who is known for his quirky comments and captions, commented, "I think u need to workout in the gym downstairs in ur building ASAP !!!!"

FARAH KHAN, what about when you make fun of the other religions and the most Holy word from the Christian HOLY BIBLE "HALLELUJAH"? Stop giving lectures to others on how to behave and first learn yourself how to behave in public and respect other Religions. You are SHAMELESS and should learn to shut your big mouth.

FARAH KHAN, what about when you make fun of the most Holy word "HALLELUJAH"?
Stop giving lectures to others on how they should behave and learn first to behave yourself and to respect the other religions. You should be the FIRST person who MUST know how to behave and respect others. You are SHAMELESS.

If you don’t like it don’t watch it. No one can do anything for anyone right now. It’s a pandemic. Basic charity won’t do anything. The job lies with the government and the heroes will be the doctors and scientists. Facts.

I find the videos posted by celebrities a welcome distraction from all the seriousness, but I would prefer short hilarious or meaningful ones. Anyway, to each their own....time pass bhi karo na or karne do na #don'timpose yourviews onothersFarrah

Every one has the right to post whatever they want to.
Workout is a important part.

It will be nice all these celebrity start donating money to hospitals gomefundcorona type. So far India and poor people will need lot of help.

Stupid. Just keep your mouth shut.

it's not the time to criticize others but to work together to combat the invisible enemy.

we have overdose of corona viru.we need distraction. healthy distraction. nothing better than work out video, keeps body and mind fresh, able to cope with stress

working out is a measure suggested by WHO that people can take while in isolation, it increases immunity which is crucial at this time.so shut ur face and ask ur bro to control his hormones while he is inside the house for the coming few weeks.

they should use their stardom for the greater good. there will be so many people losing jobs, starving and mental health issues. Help fund these charities and government to support these causes. Who will go watch them in movies if people are broke?

So, celebrities should be donating all their money? They can do that in 2 seconds with a click of a button. What are they to do with the rest of the time? Sit in a corner and be miserable for others or be helpful to others that are also quarantined, bored, and possibly scared?

Bien dit Farah, bravo.

She is right. People have much bigger concerns now so stop torturing us with your workouts. Do it off camera

i have to agree with her. i found it super annoying and insensitive as well. katrina kaif was the worst.

oh god that is so true !!!
i have been thinking abt this for long now.
celebs are self obsessed and self centered.
ananya was trolled for her struggle i guess now all these celebs should be targeted for their real struggle which is only missing starbucks and gym. insensitive bunch are glamorizing such pandemic too
kudos to yo for speaking this out !

Absolutely. I agree. The workout videos are stupid at this tine. Go feed 10 ppl daily

Yes you are right

Yes you are right

I agree with her! Actors are self obsessed and to stay in news they post workout
There are more important concerns to address

What is wrong with workout videos? I myself dont do them, but some celebritites post videos which dont involve any machines. This will eb a motivation for others who want to exercise, but dont know how to do, inside home
