'We didn't fight for land or house, we fought for air': Varun Dhawan pens thought-provoking note amid pandemic

As the country goes through a rough phase due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Bollywood actor Varun Dhawan penned a thought-provoking note and said that 'we are all in this together'.

The Student of The Year star took to Instagram and shared the message.

He said, "If we all survive this, as I hope we shall, remember that when it came down to it, we didn't fight for land or weapons or house or jewellery."

"We didn't fight for concert tickets or fancy designations or religions or politics. We didn't fight for shares in a company or a seat at the table. We didn't fight for business class tickets or the keys to a house by the beach. When all this is over, remember, that we fought for air," added Dhawan.

Taking to the caption, he stated, "We are in this together."

Celebrity followers including Katrina Kaif and more than 1.8 lakh followers liked the post.

Aparshakti Khurana chimed into the comments section and wrote, "Very well said paaji. This breaks my heart each day a million times," and added a broken heart emoticon.
