Actress Namrata Shirodkar on Wednesday lauded the drive-in vaccination centres in Bhopal and Mumbai, saying it is a super cool initiative that will help senior citizens and the differently-abled to get their vaccines.
Namrata posted two pictures on Instagram, featuring drive-in vaccination facilities in the cities.
“Drive-in vaccination centres in Bhopal and Mumbai.. a super cool initiative helping senior citizens and the differently-abled get their shot in a car. Requesting all the other state governments to have this implemented.
Vaccination is the only way out of this crisis! #GetVaccinated,” wrote Namrata as caption, with three folded hand emojis.
Mahesh Babu’s Telugu blockbuster “Pokiri” was released 15 years ago on this day, and the superstar’s wife, actress Namrata Shirodkar, shared a picture of him from the film, calling it a “cult classic”.
“A path-breaking film of its time.. a cult classic, perfect mix of mass and class! @urstrulymahesh as Pandu was just terrific! Memories of a lifetime #15YearsOfPokiri,” she wrote alongside the photo.
“Pokiri” released in 2006. The action thriller directed by Puri Jagannadh also stars Ileana D’Cruz, Prakash Raj, Nassar, Ashish Vidyarthi and Sayaji Shinde.
