A day after her birthday last week, Anushka shared a video on social media and announced that she would not be celebrating amid the COVID 19 crisis in India. The actress had even shared that she and Virat would be coming together to help out and will be announcing an initiative soon. In her video, Anushka said, “Hi guys, I hope you all are safe. I just want to say a ‘Big Thank You’ for all the lovely birthday wishes. It truly made my day special. But in the midst of all this pain and suffering, it just did not feel right to celebrate my birthday. But I have seen your special messages to me and now I have an important message for you. I would like to appeal to everyone, to unite and support our country in this hour of crisis.”
