The Telangana government is not keen on a lockdown in the State. However, director Nag Ashwin is in favour of a voluntary lockdown. In his latest social media post, the 'Mahanati' maker said that a personal lockdown is in order because doctors are stretched.
"Whether the government declares it or not...next 2 weeks should be a personal lockdown...For those of you who say lockdown is not the answer, pls go see the hospitals and how overworked they have been the past month..While we mass vaccinate, we must give the doctors some relief," he wrote on Twitter.
This is in keeping with the prevailing sentiment. While it's easier said than done, many working folks and wage-earners wouldn't find it easy to put a voluntary lockdown in practise.
Nag Ashwin is currently working on the pre-production of the Prabhas-Deepika Padukone-Amitabh Bachchan movie. It's a sci-fi.
