Amitabh Bachchan Tweets Coronavirus-Related Quackery

Amitabh Bachchan At Umang 2019 Festival

It’s been a somewhat eventful couple of days for Indian movie personalities with great privilege. They’ve shown very little civic responsibility in the face of a pandemic.

First, Bollywood singer Kanika Kapoor who eventually tested positive for coronavirus broke quarantine. MPs, MLAs and former CMs partied with her, when requests for social distancing were already in place from government. Several are under quaratine now.

South Indian superstar Rajinikanth followed suit by posting an ill-informed video about the Janta Curfew yesterday. We wrote about it, here.

Today, Amitabh Bachchan joined this hall of fame. He tweeted,

‘AN OPINION GIVEN : 5 pm ; 22nd Mar, ‘amavasya’, darkest day of month ;virus, bacteria evil force at max potential & power ! Clapping shankh vibrations reduce/ destroy virus potency Moon passing to new ‘nakshatra’ Revati. cumulative vibration betters blood circulation.’
