Netizens praise ‘sensitive’ Shahid Kapoor for going all out with protective gear as COVID-19 cases rise

Bollywood actor Shahid Kapoor, who is currently working on filmmakers Raj and DK’s upcoming OTT project, was spotted at Mumbai airport on Tuesday. And the “Kabir Singh” actor turned heads with his original airport ensemble.

Shahid was seen wearing a black outfit with yellow and black sneakers, which he paired with a neon yellow backpack.

After the photos were shared by a paparazzi on Instagram, several users took to the comments section to praise the actor’s efforts to try to be safe amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

One user wrote: “You should be asking people to do the same … rather than encouraging fanciful Bollywood masks that are no use rather than criticizing an actor for doing the right thing.”

“You have two small children to protect … Responsible enough,” commented another.

One user called him “one of those very sane and responsible men in the industry.”

As of Monday, up to 5,888 new cases were discovered in Mumbai.

Here are the comments:

Meanwhile, professionally, Kapoor will next be seen in the remake of the sports film ‘Jersey’. The 39-year-old star will play the role of a cricketer in the film. He had recently finished filming for this. It also features actors Mrunal Thakur and Pankaj Kapur, among others.

He’s also set to star in filmmakers Raj and DK’s upcoming OTT project, which will also star actor Raashi Khanna.
