BH CORRESPONDENT, Mumbai: Badlapur actor Varun Dhawan is trying on new shoes. In this case, it is rapping, that too for social awareness purposes. The actor took to Instagram to post a video where he raps about activities which could lead to the spread of coronavirus and how it can be prevented.
On a quippy background score and lo-fi beats, Varun dishes out Hindi lyrics which roughly translate to: “You can’t go to the parlour, you can’t go out in the street because if you do so then you will contract coronavirus.”
He then says that if one gathers in a crowd then also the virus can spread, before ending the brief song with a catchy catchphrase serving as the chorus and a message: “It’s a motherf****n lockdown”.
The video stars with clips from Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s speech where he addresses that the nation has to go into lockdown for 21 days to battle the spread of the deadly coronavirus and the only way to do that is social distancing.
The video shows Varun moving around in his house in a fluorescent orange jacket with juxtaposed stills from Bollywood films and scenes of an empty Mumbai.
The video ends with him the words ‘Stay indoors!!! be safe’ appearing on the screen while Varun says, “Janta Curfew rocks”.
