After the pandemic COVID 19 gripped the nations, everything changed and now we all have adapted to the new normal. However, when the lockdown was imposed last year to battle the situation, everything was new to us and we were adapting to the situation. On April 5 last year, India's Prime Minister Narendra Modi urged citizens to spread positivity by lighting candles or at their balconies or doorsteps at 9 pm for nine minutes. People from across the country participated in the initiative and showed solidarity in the fight against the deadly disease.

As it has been a year since the unforgettable event, let us look at the photos of the South stars during the #9Baje9Minutes initiative of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
