The Coronavirus pandemic has brought the world to a standstill and many nations are trying their best to combat this virus. While the government has taken up strict measures to battle the deadly virus, many could be seen breaking the law. However, there are many celebrities who can be seen doing their part as India’s economy faces a major crisis. Apart from making financial aid for PPE’s and testing kits, actors like Indrans are sticking quality cloth masks with ease.
Hindustan Times reports that the Kerala government’s anti-COVID-19 campaign proves to be a major revisit to his roots.
He explained the nuances of stitching and shared tips on how to bring out quality masks with available materials at home as part of the state government’s ‘break the chain’ campaign through a short video, which has gone viral within hours.
Narrating his backstory before acting career, Indrans started off by narrating how he was a small-scale tailor, who had toiled hard to make ends meet. He later became a sought-after costume designer in the tinsel town before beginning his acting saga, which has won him awards and accolades even in international platforms.
As a down-to-earth person who has always been proud of his humble roots, Indrans didn’t feel any reluctance when the state government requested him to be part of their anti-corona drive and demonstrate how to make cloth masks easily.
Several celebrities shared a video of him through their Facebook pages, as Indrans was seen stitching masks along with the inmates of the Central Prison at nearby Poojappura.
“It is a job which I know. So there was no need for me to act, for the video. As the virus is spreading at this scale, everyone should wear face mask,” the state ward winning actor said later.
For the uninitiated, he bagged the best actor title in the state film awards through the movie Aalorukkam in 2018. The 63-year-old actor also lifted the best actor title at the Singapore South Asian International Film Festival recently.
