Some of the biggest names in India have joined hands to speak out against misinformation spread through social media via fake forwarded messages.
Indian captain Virat Kohli and Bollywood’s biggest names, Kriti Sanon, Ayushmann Khurrana, and Sara Ali Khan, joined forces for a video that spreads awareness of the threat of bogus messages spread like wildfire via messaging programs and social media platforms.
The video shows all four celebrities sitting around a table and discussing the danger of the widespread practice.
They took the video of all the cast members in their respective houses due to the countrywide lockdown, and digitally stitched together by the director.
Tweeting the video commissioned by TikTok, Kohli came forth and said: “All of you support us with such fervour when we play for the nation. But now the nation needs you, me, all of us to play for it. Will you do your bit?”
