"Chehro par apne mask pehen rahe ho to zinda ho tum! House party par yaaro se baat kar rahe ho to zinda ho tum! Chheenko ke jhonko se tum door rehna seekho! Bheedo mei shaamil hone ko nahi kehna seekho," Akhtar recited the poem.

"Har insaan se tum milo bandh k apni baahein, har pal exit site ko tarasti dikhe voh nigaahein, jo pocket me sanitizer rakh rahe ho to zinda ho tum, chehre ho pe apne mask pehen rahe ho to zinda ho tum," the poem further read.

Akhtar posted a video of himself reciting the tweaked version of the poem. "'Toh Zinda ho tum' - Corona version. #laughalittle #stayhome #poemsforourtimes," he captioned the post.

"Har ek lamhe se tum milo khole apni baahein, Har ek pal ek naya samaa dekhe ye nigaahe, Jo apni aankhon mein hairaniyan leke chal rahe ho, Toh zinda ho tum! Dilon mein tum apni betabiyan leke chal rahe ho, Toh zinda ho tum," the poem further reads.
