Bollywood celebrities like Akshay Kumar, Sanjay Dutt, Siddharth Malhotra, Dia Mirza, Mohanlal and Keerthy Suresh, among others took to their social media to celebrate International Nurses Day. Priyanka Chopra was also among the celebrities who paid tribute to nurses who have been tackling Covid-19 from the front since it first set foot in the country in 2020.
“I come from a family of medical professionals, doctors and nurses. My grandmother was a nurse. To see the selflessness of the medical profession first hand has been a huge learning lesson for me. In the unprecedented times that we are living in, we have all been witness to those qualities and each one of us probably has a story of the selfless work of nurses we have experienced. Every day, nurses around the world are putting the wellbeing of others before their own, and that unbelievable act of selflessness must not go unnoticed. I would like to thank each and every one of you. We are blessed to have you,” wrote Priyanka.
Akshay Kumar remembered his experience of getting hospitalised and shared on Twitter, “When I was hospitalised recently, what totally moved me was the amazing capacity of nurses at work. Selflessly and non-stop. Thank you to the real heroes. #InternationalNursesDay.” Akshay has recovered from the virus.
Dia Mirza shared on Twitter, “In these extraordinary times your commitment to saving lives, your compassion and humanity is everything 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻 to every nurse and midwife, we are grateful to you and wish you good health.”
Mahesh Babu shared, “This one is for all our nurses on the frontlines battling the COVID-19 second wave under such difficult circumstances… Your extraordinary contribution is unparalleled.” He continued, “A big thank you for healing the world with your compassion, empathy and strength..for teaching us never to lose hope. We stand together in support and gratitude now and always.”
On #InternationalNursesDay Salute the selfless spirit of their dedication to serve people especially in this challenging time. You all are true Angels of God.
