Veteran filmmaker Karan Johar is doing more than his bit to keep entertaining fans amid the Coronavirus lockdown with his funny social media posts. The time he spends with his children Yash and Roohi are winning hearts on the internet. But it also sends out a message that when millions are suffering due to crisis, celebs like him are having a good time. Kjo acknowledged this fact when he was hit hard by a post on social media.
A viral video called ‘Thank You Celebrities’ calls out celebrities by sarcastically claiming that the real heroes are the celebrities. It shows Ellen DeGeneres and Amanda Byrnes treating the lockdown as a vacation. Writer Aniruddha Guha shared the video with the caption: “The only #Covid_19 video that matters, about the only people who matter: Celebrities.
The video features doctors, nurses, store workers and others talking about the problems they are facing during the coronavirus crisis, and how celeb’s video is helping them. In the video, a person brought up Ellen DeGeneres comparing quarantine to doing a job in prison, while another person, who had lost their job, said that watching a celebrity having a good time at their home was specifically what they wanted during this time.
