“Doctors and the entire medical fraternity have been the real superheroes in today’s times,” said Khurrana.

“I salute them for constantly putting themselves at risk to save the nation, but we too have the power to save them. They also have families, they also have near and dear ones worrying about them. It is our duty also to keep them safe.”

“If we respect and care for the doctors and the entire medical fraternity, who have been battling this virus since last year, we should be judicious in how we lead our lives and not be irresponsible to create more pressure on them,” he said.

The actor also reminded everyone that Covid-19 has not gone away yet and urged people to practice safety protocols and guidelines, including maintaining social distancing and wearing masks.
