Taking to his social media handles, Jr NTR said, “My dear fans, a big thank you to each and every one of you. I have seen your messages, your videos, and your good wishes. Your prayers have kept me going and I am indebted to you all for this love. I am doing very good and I hope to test negative soon. Every year, the affection shown by you on the occasion of my birthday is something I truly cherish. But in these challenging times, the biggest gift you can give me is to stay home and follow local lockdown rules (sic).”

The RRR star lauded the efforts of frontline workers and requested his fans to be careful during these tough times. “Our country is at war with Covid 19. Our medical community and frontline workers are waging a selfless and tireless war. Many people have lost their loved ones and livelihoods. This is not a time for celebration. This is a time for showing our solidarity with those in need. Please take care of your family and loved ones. Support each other and extend a helping hand to those in need. When all this is over and the war on Covid 19 is won, we shall celebrate together. Wear a mask. Stay at home (sic),” he added.
