Coronavirus pandemic: Amitabh Bachchan gets 'home quarantined' stamp, urges fans to be cautious

Amid rising concern over coronavirus situation, Amitabh Bachchan took to Twitter to share a picture of his hand with a "Home Quarantined" stamp on it.

Late Tuesday night, the actor tweeted a picture of his hand with a ''Home Quarantined'' stamp on it. "Keep safe, be cautious, remain isolated if detected," he posted.

Bachchan has been actively spreading the word on coronavirus on social media. He recently penned a poem and posted a video of his rendition of the same on Twitter. He also cancelled his weekly Sunday meeting with his fans at his residence.

Dilip Kumar, another Bollywood icon, on Monday said he is "completely under isolation" as a precautionary measure to avoid any infection due to the coronavirus outbreak. The 97-year-old actor shared his health update on Twitter.

Meanwhile, the Mumbai municipal corporation on its Twitter handle thanked Bachchan for "spreading the word" on home quarantine.
