Amitabh Bachchan

These are truly trying times as the entire country is facing the rampage of Covid-19 second wave. With people losing their livelihood and lives, there is an all-pervading tragedy and it is necessary that we look beyond the pall of gloom and doing this is the popular actor Amitabh Bachchan.

Taking to Twitter, Bachchan has shared a motivational video to encourage everyone to unite and fight against the deadly Coronavirus. The superstar stressed that it is necessary for all to come together and not lose hope.

In the video, Big B is seen reciting a motivational poem which was penned by his father, the well known poet, Harivansh Rai Bachchan titled Ruke Na Tu.

The poem instils a sense of confidence and courage to fight in these trying times.

Bachchan, later, also urged everyone to support the frontline workers in any way they can. He said, “These words, written by my father Dr Harivansh Rai Bachchan, are a clarion call that reminds us to never give up. They were written at a time when the country faced a different crisis and challenges. But even today, they resonate. I believe these words celebrate the spirit of the COVID warriors, our frontline workers, who as we all know are sacrificing so much for all of us. It is time we support them and bolster the fight against COVID. This is our fight. We can all contribute in whatever way we can. We must come together. We must all come together for India.” He captioned the image as, “We fight.. come together.. We will win!!”
