“There is a need to follow two important things to fight this pandemic — resolve and restraint,” he said. "During this curfew, we shall neither leave our homes nor get onto the streets or roam about our localities. Only those associated with emergency and essential services will leave home,” the PM said. “This Janata Curfew will in a way be a litmus test for us. This is also the time to see how prepared India is to fight off a global pandemic like the coronavirus."

Bollywood celebrities like Ajay Devgn, Ayushmann Khurrana, Parineeti Chopra, Sidharth Malhotra among others have come out in support of Modi's Janta Curfew initiative.
