After entertaining netizens with his satirical song on baldness, dedicated to all the baldies in the world, actor Anupam Kher shares an informative video in the wake of the coronavirus outbreak.

The actor took to the micro-blogging site and posted a video, advising his fans to resort to greeting people with a 'namaste' rather than shaking hands or hugging, thus obliterating the fear of spreading germs through physical contact.

In his video he says that, '...I feel the best way to greet each other is not shake hands, but to go back to the traditional Indian way of greeting to say namaste. Just put your hands together so you don't get infected and don't have any fear of infection...'

At the end, Kher emphasises on the fact that this is merely an idea ends the video by saying namaste.

Take a look at his video:
