With a global pandemic running wild, most actors have been consigned to house arrest. While a few are returning to books, many others are taking to Instagram to share their workout videos with their followers. This has not really gone down well with director Farah Khan.
The choreographer-director took to Instagram to make her own video, requesting other stars and celebrities to stop posting such videos. "I only request these celebrities and stars to please stop making workout videos and bombarding us with them."
The director went on to say, "We know that you are privileged and are only concerned about maintaining your figure in the midst of a global pandemic. But some of us, most of us have bigger concerns."
Khan is not the only one to share this opinion. Diljit Dosanjh also took to Instagram to ask his peers to 'Stop posting your home workouts.'
With a mandatory order to shut down malls, cinema halls, and gyms across the country, several stars have been forced to take their workout routines online. Jacqueline Fernandez, Katrina Kaif, and Sara Ali Khan were among the many who posted their schedules online.
Paucity of time is a major reason for missing out on exercise for many. Let’s utilise this 'precious' time to take care of ourselves by exercising at least 4 times a week and building a stronger immunity. Here’s how you can pack in a proper routine using just the staircase. Practice this anytime during the day (preferably after an hour of eating). You don’t need to come in contact with anyone else for it.

Clearly, not everyone is as fixated on their physique during such difficult times. With the lockdown set to last for three more weeks, it might be interesting to see how the stars cope in the absence of the spotlight.
