Exactly like our soldiers do at a war."
She urged everyone to be responsible enough and learn from other countries that have dealt with the outbreak of COVID-19. Parineeti's letter further read, "THANK YOU guys. We will NEVER , EVER be able to repay you. Guys let's be responsible.. By socialising/partying/ continuing life as it was, we are putting everyone at risk. Let's learn from what happened in other countries.. Lets stop now! We don't wanna regret later..."
