Mumbai continues to struggle with coronavirus with the city reporting maximum casualties due to pandemic. Post the lockdown phase however, people have started coming out to start their work albeit a bit slowly. Some of the Bollywood stars have also reportedly started post-production work like dubbing sessions. But all these things are being conducted in a one-to-one manner with all the precautions and very few people around.
Reporters Break Social Distancing Norms At Urvashi Rautela’s Press Conference
Urvashi Rautela’s press conference that was organized very recently, however, broke all the norms that are expected to be followed including social distancing. It was the first of its kind celebrity conference during the unlock phase and one could see a massive gathering of media reporters gathered around to get the important bites of the session. Things started getting bad when the reporters flouted all the norms of social distancing crowding together so that they could hear properly what Urvashi Rautela was saying.
A video of the actress coming to the event and then addressing the press reporters has gone viral which clearly shows how the eager reporters are sticking close to each other without maintaining the distance deemed necessary to keep COVID-19 at bay.
Urvashi Rautela Launched Sanitizer Brand
Ironically, the Miss Diva Universe 2015 was present at the event to launch a brand of hand sanitizer which has proved to be a very important tool during the fight against coronavirus. Talking to the media Urvashi said, “For me, this is more than an event, I think it is all about a social cause, helping common people, as this particular company is offering everything at half the rate, and I wanted to do something for common people. So, I agreed to launch the product.”
The Bollywood star further added, “It is essential to take care of ourselves during the COVID-19 pandemic. We must wear masks and gloves, and properly sanitized.” Even though the cause behind the event was good, the way reporters behaved in the times when the pandemic is killing people is certainly not acceptable. The moment the video surfaced on the internet people slammed it for breaking the social distancing norms. Many believe that the concerned authorities should at least warn the team of paparazzi for this sort of behaviour whereas some believe that they should be penalized for being so irresponsible.
