Indian Premier League is being held in six major cities of India but at the same time, India is suffering from the second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic too. Already, 5 players have pulled out themselves from IPL 2021 so far. The Health system is facing a huge crisis due to the increasing numbers of COVID patients. In the worst scenario, many B-town celebs are coming forward and helping others through donations and arranging medical facilities. Now, Preity Zinta who is supporting her IPL team Kings XI Punjab has also penned a note on the current situation and shared a strong message with her fans.
Preity Zinta wrote while sharing a mask on selfie on Instagram that reads, "These are tough times for everyone. A lot of our friends, families & fellow Indians are devastated by this pandemic. We all must try in our individual capacity to help out by making a difference financially, emotionally & mentally. Part of this is being socially responsible by wearing masks, following all the COVID protocols & being more sensitive & compassionate towards others. I’m not home but I’m grateful that I’m safe & I sincerely hope being part of the IPL, we can keep people safe at home by providing them some relief & something to look forward to in these trying times. Hold on folks, this too shall pass. It has to pass. We will ride this out together ?? Love & prayers to all."
