As per the request of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, people across our country clapped for those who tirelessly helping the nation in this crucial situation. In his statement of Thursday, Modi said millions of people are working day and night in hospitals, airports by not taking care of themselves. He urged citizens to stand on their doorways or balconies on 5 o clock in the evening of 22nd of March to clap hands and to ring bells in a way of encouraging them.
Immense number of people followed the words uttered by the Prime minister which is evident in social media platforms. Many cinema celebrities also joined public to thank those people who are serving for the wellness of the nation.

Though the intention of the filmmaker is pure and progressive, as we all know, we can’t expect social media to behave good to us as it is a place filled with negative. This post shared by Vignesh Shivan got appreciated by enormous number of his followers. But few people tried to mock the post by comparing it to a post shared by popular Bollywood actor Ranveer Singh. Few also criticized the way the pictures are edited. Check out some of their reactions below :
Bollywood actor Ranveer Singh, in his “Thanks” post, uploaded a picture of his wife Deepika Padukone clapping for the warriors. Uploading the picture of his wife, Ranveer thanked our heroes. Check out his post below :
There are high chances for the post Vignesh Shivan to be a coincidental one as there is only one hour gap between both the posts. People are asked by our PM to clap from their balcony and there is no other way to clap from balcony. Comment your views on these comments received by the “NRD” director.
