Actress Alka Kaushal, who plays Sita on Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai, reacted to the memes and in an interview with Pinkvilla said, “At the end, we are showing that despite being just characters on a show, one must wear a mask or face shield. I have made so many entries in the house wherein you saw me using the sanitiser. There is nothing to troll about in this. I believe this is how everyone should be. This is what you should do to yourself because there is no vaccine or medication to COVID 19 as yet and you have to take care of yourself and what better way than this.”
Do you think the production house has gone a little too far in driving the ‘safety’ point home?
