Salman Khan, on Sunday, wished his fans a happy Easter with a special message about the Coronavirus pandemic. The actor went filmy to educate his fans that even in times of festivities, you have to stay focused due to the pandemic. He recreated a romantic scene from his 1989 blockbuster Maine Pyar Kiya, to showcase how important social distancing is right now.
Salman shared a video on Twitter, which is his reimagining of Maine Pyar Kiya, if it was released in today’s time. He captioned the post as, “If MPK releases now, happy Easter be focused n Stay strong,”
The video has a ‘then and now’ clip from the film Maine Pyar Kiya. The scene has Salman kissing a lipstick mark on a mirror that was left by Bhagyashree’s character in the movie, before leaving him behind. Over 30 years later, Salman Khan, given the need of the hour, instead of kissing the lipstick mark, cleans it with sanitiser and a piece of cloth. He can also be seen wearing similar clothes in the video, a maroon t-shirt and a dark brown leather jacket.
If MPK releases now…
