From Katrina Kaif, Varun Dhawan and Arjun Kapoor face timing each other to Bebo catching up with her BFFs, stars have been making sure that they are socially connected with their friends while maintaining social distancing. To kill boredom, recently, Union Minister Smriti Irani started '#TwitterAntakshri' on Sunday.

Are you up for a #QuaranTakshri?
Today, Parineeti Chopra started something similar on Instagram and named it as #QuaranTakshri. She beautifully sung 'Tu Hi Re'. and challenged her friends Alia Bhatt, Ayushmann Khurrana and Shraddha Kapoor to join in the sing-along as she said: "'T' se gao!" All three stars tagged by Parineeti are known for their musical skills. While Ayushmann is a trained singer and composer, Alia and Shraddha have always been seen singing many reprised versions of the songs from their movies. Parineeti made her singing debut in movies from her song, 'Mana Ke Hum Yaar Nahin' from Meri Pyaari Bindu.
