"Whatever they are saying is for our good," he said, requesting people to stay safe and stay at home. "Social distancing as well as staying at home is very important at his hour. It might be difficult for all of us. But at the same time, we have to think of people such as officials from the police and BBMP, doctors and nurses, and it becomes our duty to safeguard and protect them, and we can do this only by listening to them," he stressed.
Puneeth believes that the issue of coronavirus will go sooner if everyone cooperates. "If we have to build our state and our nation, we have to join hands to fight against COVID- 19" he said.
The actor, who last came on screen in Natasaarvabhowma, will next be seen in Santhosh Ananddram’s directorial, Yuvarathnaa. The project is being made under the banner of Hombale Films. The team has completed the shooting, and is left with just two songs to film.
