He says masks are a 'responsibility' on your ears.

Stressing on the importance of covering your face amidst the coronavirus crisis, actor Amitabh Bachchan on Saturday shared a PSA (public service announcement) calling face masks 'Kaano par zimmedari' (a responsibility on the ears).

The 77-year-old star put out an illustrated video on Instagram and Twitter, in which characters of different ages are shown wearing face masks. The video starts with a voice-over, saying "Kamla ke kaano par, Vimla ke kaano par, Sharma ke kaano par, Mishra ke kaano par, chhote bhaiya ke kaano par, Baahubali ke kaano par."

As the video progresses, the narration says, "Raipur ke Romeo ke, or Jabalpur ki Juliet ke, Adosi Padosi ke, Mama, Mausi ke, Nai ke, Halwaai ke, Ek do aur dhai ke Sab ke kaano par ek zimmedaari hai."

The video concludes with the note, "Everyone has a responsibility on their ears, and when they are going out of the house, they are playing it well.... Then why are you not wearing the mask?"

Bachchan is one of the most socially active senior actors of Bollywood. He keeps his fans posted by tweeting and sharing his personal and professional updates. He often shares public service messages through his social media handles.
