Taking to the Twitter, the actor wrote, "Let's not play Doctor-Doctor at home. Follow only your physician or any reputed doctor. Don't just follow anything floating on watsapp. Sieve thru it. confirm, reconfirm. There r all kinds of rumours being floated by pharma companies for their own vested interest (Sic)." 

He also urged people to encourage all to take vaccine and stop stepping out. "Easy said than done but we need to be really strong during this Pandemic. Urge each other to vaccinate asap to stop the surge and also take extreme precautions and follow Covid appropriate behaviour. STOP going out for the time being, just STOP," he wrote in a separate tweet.

Earlier this week, Shekhar Suman tweeted to encourage netizens to help others via social media platforms.
