In another awareness video posted by Varalakshmi, the actor addresses vaccine hesitancy by quashing rumours about vaccines. Explaining how the side effects of vaccination are not something to be scared of, she advises everyone to get vaccinated as a precautionary measure. “#GetVaccinated avoid rumours I’ve got mine.. Have you got yours..?? Take the vaccine Beat corona #tamil version @chennaicorp @rdc_south @BabuVijayB,” Varalaxmi tweeted.
Several celebrities from different film industries have come forward to do their bit to create awareness on the coronavirus or contribute to COVID-19 relief. Tollywood actors Chiranjeevi and Mahesh Babu organised vaccination drives recently, while many like Sonu Sood have been contributing to COVID-19 relief on the ground.
