Anushka Sharma, who turned 33 on Saturday, shared a video on Sunday where she spoke about why she did not wish to celebrate her birthday with her husband, cricketer Virat Kohli amid the worsening COVID-19 situation.
However, she thanked her fans and those from the film fraternity who had wished her on her birthday.
Anushka said she and Virat Kohli, are instead planning to start a movement to help people amid the COVID-19 crisis.
“Hello everyone, I hope you all are safe. I just wanted to say a big thank you for all the lovely birthday wishes. You truly made my day special. But in the midst of all this pain and suffering, it did not feel right to celebrate my birthday. But I have seen your special messages to me and now I have an important message for you. I would like to appeal to everyone to unite and support our country in this hour or crisis. Virat and I are coming together to do our bit. We will share the details soon so that you can also become part of this movement. Remember we are all in this together. Guys, please stay safe and take care of yourself,” she said on Instagram.
