Amitabh Bachchan tweets to his fans requesting them not to gather at his Jalsa bungalow for the Sunday meet due to the Coronavirus scare. Sunday meet and greet outside the actor’s Mumbai residence is a ritual that has been taking place for many years but now Big B has put it on halt for some time as a precaution measure against the spread of the virus. The actor, on Sunday, informed his “well-wishers” that he will not come at the Jalsa gate to meet them and asked them to stay safe.
He tweeted this:
“To all extended family and well- wishers, an earnest request! Please do not come at Jalsa gate today… Sunday meet. I am not going to come! Take precautions… be safe.”
