The three artistes are the latest film personalities to have received the COVID-19 vaccine after Amitabh Bachchan, Jaya Bachchan, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Kamal Haasan, Salman Khan, Sanjay Dutt Sharmila Tagore, Jeetendra, Dharmendra, Hema Malini and Shefali Shah among others.

Megastar Amitabh Bachchan, in his blog on April 2, had called the vaccination against coronavirus “historic”. “The entire procedure of taking the vaccination needs a rather detailed exclusive Blog .. shall do so .. later .. it was historic!!” he had written at the time.

As people above the age of 45 have become eligible to receive the coronavirus vaccine since April 1, a slew of Bollywood and television stars have taken the shot and documented the vaccination process to encourage fans to follow suit. Not only Bollywood, many television personalities– Ram Kapoor, Gautami Kapoor and Raghu Ram– have also gotten themselves vaccinated.
