Impressed with fanmade posters of him wearing masks, Big B on Tuesday shared pictures and asked people to follow Covid appropriate behaviour. While he struggled with sharing the complete picture on Instagram, he wrote, "mask pehne rehna bhai ..please (Keep wearing the mask please)"

He captioned another picture saying, "ye rahi vo tasveer YAAR FACE CHUP GAYA HAI , HOW TO REDUCE SIZE TO SHOW FACE .. ANYWAY .. iske kuch samajh mein nahin aaya ki kya hai ye , except ki mask pehne rehna zaroori hai .. even though some relaxations in lockdown have been announced .. other wise ye jo blue colour wala Spider-Man ya jo bhi hai , uski tarah latakte rahenge!!"
