As the nation continues to remain in the grips of the devastating second wave of COVID-19 pandemic, many Bollywood and TV celebrities are using their respective social media handles to urge people to stay indoors, break myths related to plasma donation and share information related to COVID-19 resources.

Amid this, actor Abhishek Bachchan recently took to his Twitter handle to spread positivity during this trying times. The Big Bull star penned a heartfelt note that read, “Here’s sending out a huge virtual hug to you all. RT and spread the love. In times like these, we need it. #MaskOn.”

While most Twitter users appreciated Abhishek’s positive message, his tweet didn’t go down well with a netizen who called him out for sending just ‘virtual hugs’ when the country is grappling with a serious crisis. The tweet read, “Wish you did more than just sending hugs! People are dying without oxygen & beds. Hugs are just not enough, Sir.”
