With the Unlock 1.0 phase that began in our country from June 1st, a lot of businesses are opening up and people are trying to go back to their normal routines. While it is scary to think of going out of our homes after such a long period of time, it is also important that we move on at some point and fight the virus.
That’s exactly what Akshay Kumar is talking about in his brand new ad for Press Information Bureau (PIB). He is seen walking out of his house wearing a mask when his neighbour asks him why he is going out right now. To this, he says that it is necessary to get on with our lives. Akshay emphasises that it is important for us to wear our masks and wash our hands to prevent the spread of the disease, but also find ways to go back to our normal routines.
Our battle with #COVID19 is not over, but we will not be afraid of the virus. We will take all precautions and we are going to move on with our lives

Directed by R Balki, this became one of the very first shoots to happen during the lockdown and was done with government protocols and rules in mind. Read more about it here.
Akshay has also been very supportive of the plight that people are facing in the country due to the COVID-19 lockdown. Apart from making a generous donation of 25 crores to the PM Cares fund, he has also offered to help theatre owners and daily wage workers in these tough times.
