‘Modi Uncle said so’: Anupam Kher advocates social distancing with kid’s video


New Delhi : Veteran actor Anupam Kher on Monday shared an adorable video of an innocent mother-son conversation, where the kid innocently tells his mom he doesn’t want to go out because “Modi Uncle has said not to”.

The 65-year-old actor took to Instagram to share the video that starts with a mom who pans the camera to her kid saying, “Okay, now we are ready. Shall we go to blossoms now?”

The kid replies, “No, not ready,” after which his mother says “just now you told me that you are ready.”

The kid innocently replies while he cries, “I am not ready, It is lockdown and Modi uncle told us not to go out of the house.”
To which his mom asks him, “What do we do then?”

The kid honestly answers back saying, “Then we have to stay in the house only.”

His mom teases by saying, “It’s okay we will go out and come once.”
The kid says, “The government will take me because Modi uncle told me to not to go out of the house.”

The ‘Hotel Mumbai’ star who tagged Prime Minister Narendra Modi in the video captioned it as,” A friend shared this video which is a MUST share one. This young chap has really taken the #Lockdown very very seriously because #ModiUncle said so. You will love his cuteness as well as his commitment. Thank you, my young friend!! You are the BESTEST!! #ModiUncle @narendramodi.”
