The last time Salman Khan was this angry was on Bigg Boss 13. Now, with life itself turned into an extended Bigg Boss episode, the actor is doubly furious. 

In a new video on Instagram, Salman shares his experience of lockdown at his Panvel farmhouse. The actor is presently stranded there with his mother Salma, sisters Alvira and Arpita Khan, brother-in-law Aayush Sharma, nephew Ahil, and others. 

“This is the Bigg Boss of life,” Salman says in the 10-minute video, talking about how he and his family are observing social distancing. He narrates an incident about sending out his friend to get vegetables from a nearby village. When stopped by the police, his friend had removed his mask to talk to them. When he got back, Salman told him that removing the mask was a stupid call. 

The actor then said that those who are flouting lockdown rules are endangering countless lives. “Because of some jokers, this virus is spreading,” Salman said. “If you do step out with your friends, the police won’t hit you with canes. Do you think they are enjoying this?” 

He also said that people who wish to pray can do it from their homes. “If you want to read namaz or do puja-paath, do it from home. As children, we have learned that God resides within.” 

Salman thanked essential services workers for their commitment. “Policemen, nurses, doctors, bank staff, all are working 18-hours a day. They are doing so to contain the spread of the coronavirus.” 

Shocked at instances of stone-pelting against healthcare professionals, Salman asked, “The doctors and nurses who are saving your lives, you are pelting stones at them?” He went on: “People diagnosed with the virus are running away from hospital. Where are they running? To life or death?”

Salman urged people to be sensitive to those who have tested positive for the coronavirus. “It's sad to test positive for a disease, but worse to say negative things about people who have tested positive.” 

He also spoke about migrant workers and daily wagers who are pressed for food and supplies. “I feel the condition of people without food to feed their family. I salute them, because they know it is better to not eat than to lose their family."
