The pictures show the 'Coolie No 1' actress requesting the camerapersons to stay away from her. A worrisome Sara is seen making hand gestures as she asks signals them to not come any closer.

A user wrote, "Ha to behen mask pehen le..."
"And she's been educating people to wear masks n maintain distancing for so long! N not getting spotted unnecessarily also," commented another.
A netizen questioned, "Didi ka mask kaha hai?"
