Jr NTR is currently under home quarantine after testing positive for the novel coronavirus. The actor is all set to celebrate his birthday tomorrow. During the Covid-19 crisis, Jr NTR appealed to his fans not to celebrate his birthday and requested everyone to follow lockdown rules.
Jr NTR's note read, "My dear fans, a big thank you to each and every one of you. I have seen your messages, your videos, and your good wishes. Your prayers have kept me going and I am indebted to you all for this love. I am doing very good and I hope to test negative soon. Every year, the affection shown by you on the occasion of my birthday is something I truly cherish. But in these challenging times, the biggest gift you can give me is to stay home and follow lockdown rules. Our country is at war with Covid-19. Our medical community and frontline workers are waging a selfless and tireless war. Many people have lost their loved ones and livelihoods. This is not a time for celebration. This is a time for showing our solidarity with those in need. Please take care of your family and loved ones. Support each other and extend a helping hand to those in need. When all this over and the war on Covid-19 is won, we shall celebrate together. Wear a mask. Stay at home (sic)."
