Nia Sharma takes a subtle dig at 'woke celebs' urging people to get vaccinated in latest tweet

Popular television actress Nia Sharma joined the list of celebs who have been urging citizens to get vaccinated as the government opened registrations for those about 18 years of age.

However, Nia took a subtle dig at “woke celebs” doing so in her latest tweet.

Nia wrote, "Every woke celebrity of this nation urging people to get vaccinated...Kindly mention the name of the centres that have it readily available at this moment so that people queuing up in thousands for days now don’t look stupid. P.S we need to get vaccinated.”

With Phase III of the nationwide COVID-19 vaccination drive set to start on May 1, the total registrations on the Co-Win portal for the new phase have crossed 2.28 crore in just two days, the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare said on Thursday.

This comes after scores of Indians faced a glitch on the registration website.

Meanwhile, many, who flock at vaccination centres have also been facing difficulty due to its shortage since many places have put up the “out of stock” signboards.

The Maharashtra government had on Wednesday announced that it would vaccinate people in the age group of 18 to 44 free of cost at the state-run hospitals, even as Health Minister Rajesh Tope said that the drive to inoculate people from this category cannot be launched on May 1 due to unavailability of sufficient number of vaccine doses.

Nia rose to fame with shows such as 'Kaali: Ek Agnipariksha' and 'Ek Hazaaron Mein Meri Behna Hai'.

Currently, she stars in season two of the web-series Jamai 2.0, along with Ravi Dubey and Achint Kaur.

Last month, Nia, who was present at the Dadasaheb Phalke International Awards 2021, was all praises for her “Jamai Raja” co-actor Ravi Dubey, describing him as the “best kisser”.

She said, “I had inhibitions kissing him onscreen. I am asked how comfortable I am in doing intimate scenes with Ravi, all I want to say is that Ravi is the best kisser.”
