So far, the number of coronavirus cases in India has risen to 1071 with 29 fatalities. 100 patients have recovered.
Even as authorities say that there’s no evidence of community transmission of the coronavirus, health and medical professionals fear whether India with its fragile health-care system and battered economy can handle the crisis like that has devastated nations like Italy and China.
The coronavirus has also affected the billion-dollar Bollywood film industry with all shoots coming to a standstill. Yash Raj Films, the production house that has given us some of our most memorable movies, celebrates 50 years in the business this year and naturally, Aditya Chopra had big plans.
Filmfare reports that Chopra had decided to make it a grand affair and that the event was supposed to have Shah Rukh Khan, Salman Khan, Akshay Kumar, Ranbir Kapoor and Ranveer Singh headlining it with big film announcements. However, amidst the spread of the coronavirus, the banner has decided to postpone the celebration.
