Smriti Irani organises 'Twitter Antakshari' during coronavirus lockdown; Karan Johar, Ekta Kapoor participate

On Sunday, 22 March, India observed a Janata Curfew - a 14-hour lockdown on all public activities and services including shops and public transport - in a bid to contain the swiftly spreading COVID-19 pandemic in the country.

While the country observed a complete shutdown, Union minister Smriti Irani came up with a rather unique idea to pass time by playing 'Twitter Antakshari'. She further added that it might be difficult to tag everyone in a family of 130 crore members, adding that netizens should just tweet songs and lyrics to participate.

Soon after the announcement, netizens began rolling the dice and twitter walls were filled with songs and lyrics. However, filmmaker Karan Johar chose a very unfortunate song with 'Lag Ja Gale'. Irani was quick with a tongue-in-cheek response and wrote that the song is incorrect during the time of coronavirus pandemic.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi had proposed 'Janta Curfew' on Sunday between 7 am and 9 pm as part of social distancing to check the spread of the deadly virus. He said that it will add tremendous strength to the fight against Covid-19 pandemic. In an attempt to contain the rapidly spreading coronavirus outbreak in India, several states announced they will be imposing lockdown till 31 March.
