As the week started, Delhiites saw the morning engulfed in thick smog, a lethal mixture of smoke and fog. The visibility was reduced to 200 metres and below 25 metres in many parts of Punjab, Haryana, Northern Rajasthan and Western UP apart from National Capital Region. Schools up to class 5 have been closed considering high level of pollution. Citing the sorry state of affairs in Delhi, many Bollywood celebrities expressed concern on social media.  Actress Taapsee Pannu has expressed her sadness over the "smoggy and hazy" weather in the northern part of the country.

"Really saddening to see this smoggy weather in parts of North India at this time of the year. Even the most powerful star around struggles to make his presence felt. Poor sun. Poor we," Taapsee tweeted.

Actress Parineeti Chopra, who is in Delhi for her work schedule complains of chest pain, headache and breathing difficulties due to poor quality of air in Delhi. She posted a picture of herself wearing an anti-pollution mask with a caption: 

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 Varun Dhawan, who shared screen with Taapsee Pannu in Judwaa 2, also expressed concerns on choking conditions in Delhi. The actor is currently in Delhi for work. He posted a picture wearing a vog mask, alerting fans about the deteriorating air quality in the National Capital. He 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

Earlier this morning, Arjun Kapoor spoke volumes about the choking conditions in Delhi. He wrote:

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...

The Bollywood actor expressed his disappointment about the dangerous levels of pollution in Delhi.

“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 engulfs 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”

The video shows last year's accident which took place on Yamuna Expressway. According to Indian Express, the accident claimed one life while injuring seven.
