Through the clip, the actors are seen giving essential advice to citizens on how to tackle coronavirus. Tips, like washing hands regularly with clean water or covering faces while sneezing, were given as best practices to combat the disease. In the wake of the pandemic, Thackeray recently announced lockdown of all non-essential shops and offices in Mumbai, MMR region, Pune, Pimpri Chinchwad, and Nagpur on Friday.

He further added all offices will have to work from home, and if that is not possible then they will have to shut their offices. But he stated that there is no plan to stop local trains or bus services in the state. He said these stringent measures had to be put in force as people were not practicing social distancing. He also said the government is working on measures to mitigate the financial crisis.
