Varun Dhawan, Parineeti Chopra and Arjun Kapoor are battling Delhi smog while shooting for their respective films.

Delhi NCR woke up to a smoggy morning on Wednesday, as air quality remained in the highly ‘severe’ category in several parts of the city. Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal even described the status of Delhi as “gas chamber”. And not just us, Bollywood celebrities like Varun Dhawan and Arjun Kapoor who are in the city to shoot for their respective films, are suffering from breathing the highly polluted air. They have even put up social media posts urging the audience to go green. Here’s what they said.

Varun Dhawan, who is in Delhi to shoot for upcoming film October, posted a picture wearing a mask on Instagram and wrote, “I have clicked this selfie to show you guys what actual smog looks like. I don’t want to preach I am equally to blame for this mess as most of the citizens of our great country, but now instead of blaming each other and the government let’s change. It’s time we go green. #delhichokes.”

Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar actor Arjun Kapoor is also in the capital with Parineeti Chopra for the first schedule of the film. Making a valid point, he shared a video and tweeted, “What’s happening in Delhi is dangerous in more ways than one can imagine…I’m filming here as I type this and I’m fearing things aren’t gonna really get any better…I’m here for a few weeks for my shoot in Delhi but it’s disconcerting to see the city suffocating. We need to put politics and personal agendas aside stopping the blame game & come together to find a solution otherwise all of us are gonna be affected in more ways than we realise. I hope & pray the people who are assigned the job of finding long term solutions activately seek & put them into action soon. As citizens we shouldn’t feel paranoid about the air we breathe. Our capital is suffering & we are all to blamed but now is the time to right our wrongs. The video i posted was sent to me & as I stand at look out of the window the fear that engulfes me is that this is reality & it can happen to any of us if we aren’t extremely aware & carful. The smog is dangerous long term & short term. Really hope things improve. Stay safe Delhi.”

Varun also shared a video on Twitter regarding recycling of waste.

Arjun’s Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar co-star Parineeti Chopra also shared, “2 days of shooting in Delhi – and my chest is hurting, head is hurting, throat is paining!! 😰 Cant believe we have let things go so out of hand that human beings dont have air to breathe to anymore. Can’t imagine the situation for kids and elders. Please guys, lets all WAKE UP. We cannot be doing this to our planet. #DelhiSmog”

Actor Shekhar Kapur also posted, “The air you pollute, others breathe. What u consume, others pay for. With their health #smogindelhi #pollution #DelhiSmog.”
