Dhawan also created a quirky video to support the rap song which featured him as the rap artist.

Besides Varun, the video featured excerpts from Prime Minister Narendra Modi's televised address in which he announced a nationwide lockdown as a precautionary measure against COVID-19.

The video also featured a scene from British television series Teletubbies, a scene from Shah Rukh Khan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan starrer Devdas and most importantly, country's deserted roads amid the lockdown.

"You can't go to the parlour, you can't go to the street, you can't go to sabzi mandi," Dhawan raps.

At an instance Dhawan is then seen indicating towards his refrigerator and saying, "this is all due to eat."

"Ghar se bahar nikala to corona hoga, gedi kiya to corona hoga, pyaar kia to dil tutega, dil tutega to dard hoga... kyu... its ****** lockdown," the 32-year-old actor raps in the video.

The Judwaa 2 actor ends the video by lauding the Prime Minister's move as he says, "Janta Curfew rocks!"

"#LOCKDOWN #vararaps, Stay indoors stay safe," he captioned the post and also thanked music composer Tanishk Bagchi who might have composed the song for him.
