Amid the rapidly spreading coronavirus pandemic, Bollywood celebrities have taken up the responsibility to appeal to everyone to stay safe, take precautions, stop panicking and refrain from spreading rumours. And Madhuri Dixit Nene and husband Shriram Nene are leading from the forefront. All pictures/Madhuri Dixit Nene and Shriram Nene's social media accounts.
Currently, we all know what our country is going through. From partial curfew to 21-days lockdown, India has been through a lot at the time of coronavirus. It's not just the daily man's life that has been affected and changed drastically, but speaking about Bollywood, who is considered as one of the major sources of income, has made alterations too, to fight against COVID-19. The filmmakers have suspended shooting and most celebrities have encouraged their followers to stay at home and stay safe. Bollywood is united to fight the epidemic. The quarantine time has also given celebrities a chance to spend maximum time with their families.
The popular '90s actress Madhuri Dixit Nene and husband Dr Shriram Nene, have been giving major couple goals to many people out there. This arranged marriage has left her fans in awe. Sharing the picture during the time of early quarantine days, the Dil Toh Pagal Hain actress wrote, "Making the most of this quarantine by spending some quality time with my family... Everyone, please take the necessary precautions. Take care. Stay safe. Love, MD."
Madhuri Dixit-Nene too is making the most of her free time by spending it with her husband Sriram Nene, sons Arin and Raayan. The actress took to her Instagram and gave us some insights about how she is spending her quarantine time.
During the quarantine days, Arin turned 17! On March 17, 2020, while the entire country was social distancing, Madhuri Dixit-Nene's son celebrated his 17th birthday, and the actress had a lovely post for him on social media. We can evidently see that Bollywood is really doing their part by spreading alertness and awareness through their popular channels.
Taking to her Twitter account, the actress wrote, "Know that when I scold you, it's only because I care and when I hug you, it's always cause I love you. Wherever life takes you, whatever the goals that you seek for, I will always be so proud of you! I wish for only the best in life for you. [sic]" Isn't that cute?
As the lockdown days started at the time of Gudi Padwa, on March 25, 2020, people celebrated the festivities at home. In one of the posts by Shriram Nene, he shared his pet watching the television. "Alright, this is when you are binge-watching too much...even Mello is seeing the best of his kitten and puppy interactions. [sic]"
The duo also shared a video which was captioned, "Make no mistake, humanity is at war with a virus. United we stand, divided we fall. But just make sure you keep your social distance and unite virtually [sic]"
The coronavirus outbreak has made Madhuri Dixit Nene's doctor husband Shriram Nene track the pandemic and give advice. He wrote on Twitter, "Ironic that the prospect of a pandemic brings us to respect the little things and retool how we live. [sic]?"
Shriram Nene's tweet further read, "Am looking at the data and have put our company in remote operations from home. Social distancing, quarantines, and travel restrictions are key. But the cow may be already out of the barn: mitigation with monitoring if the highest risk folks is key."
"Agree with closing of schools, theatres, gyms. But in Mumbai and India, mass transit is a Petri dish. How are we gonna prevent leakage. The crowded conditions we live in are a Petri dish for disease. One Covid-19 patient in a crowded CST bound train could infect many," he further added.
Nene tweeted further, "If the US is suffering from under testing and under-reporting, we can only imagine what it is like in India. Let’s just assume everyone will be or has been exposed. Worst case scenario is to just get ready for the 15% who will fall desperately ill..."
"We need to develop next generation monitoring and follow up by effectively crowd sourcing and self reporting the infections progress in the community. We could generate heat maps to alert people to outbreaks. Sort of like a google maps real time traffic counter...," read his Tweet.
"Countries have spent so much on arms when they should have spent it on health. Ironically, HG Wells has predicted it when he wrote, “War of the Worlds,” in which the Martian armies were stopped by the humble cold virus. Kind of a spin on the meek will inherit the Earth," concluded Shriram Nene.
For the uninitiated, Madhuri Dixit-Nene was at the peak of her career when she tied the knot with Dr. Shriram Nene in 1999 in California. She was blessed with Arin on March 17, 2003, and with Ryan on March 8, 2005. On the work front, she was last seen in Kalank, which had released last year. We wish the family all the strength to be together during this time!
