She said, “At the end, we are showing that despite being just characters on a show, one must wear a mask or face shield. I have made so many entries in the house wherein you saw me using the sanitiser. There is nothing to troll about in this. I believe this is how everyone should be. This is what you should do to yourself because there is no vaccine or medication to COVID-19 as yet and you have to take care of yourself and what better way than this!”

She added that netizens would have trolled them even if they weren’t wearing masks. “If we had not done this, we would have got trolled anyway that ‘oh the characters are roaming around carelessly without masks’. I think one should take this positively as this is something you should do when you are going out, wear a mask. ”
