Rishi Kapoor recommends laughter therapy in time of coronavirus, shares funny video on outbreak
Veteran actor Rishi Kapoor has shared a funny video on his Twitter account to lift the mood of his fans amid the coronavirus outbreak.
The 41-second video shows a reporter speaking to a young man in a party, with loud music playing in the background. The journalist and the man can be seen speaking in a foreign language but the subtitles suggest that they both are talking about the dreaded coronavirus.
The man looks all serious as he shares his knowledge about the pandemic. The reporter then informs him that it is believed that drinking vodka can kill the virus. The man gets elated and starts dancing with a broad smile on his face.
“Go on smile for this youngster’s sake. Times are getting boring and depressing. This is a joke not to be taken seriously! Enjoy!" read the tweet shared by Rishi Kapoor.
